          'Accountability and transparency' in central banking? Not until news organizations attempt journalism      Comment   Translate Page      

2:50p ET Saturday, April 13, 2019

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Central banks get away with the flaming hypocrisy illustrated below because mainstream news organizations don't dare to put a critical question to them.

Here, if David Lawder and Leika Kihara of Reuters were serious journalists, and their editor, Paul Simao, had the wit for his job, someone from Reuters would have asked the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde -- in the name of the "accountability, transparency, and effective communication" she purported to be advocating -- to identify the markets in which her member central banks are surreptitiously trading and when they are surreptitiously trading, and to explain the objectives of their surreptitious trading.

... Dispatch continues below ...

We Are Amid the Biggest Financial Bubble in History;
When It Bursts, Bullion Owned in the Safest Way Will Protect Wealth

With GoldCore you can own allocated -- and most importantly -- segregated coins and bars in Switzerland, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

Switzerland, Singapore, and Hong Kong remain extremely safe jurisdictions for storing bullion. Avoid exchange-traded funds and digital gold providers where you are a price taker. Ensure that you are outright legal owner of your bullion. If you do not own segregated bullion that you can visit, inspect, and take delivery of, you are exposed.

Instead Reuters makes itself a mere press-release service, like PR Newswire.

How easy it would be for any news organization to show central bankers up and shut them up. A single critical question would do it, but there isn't one in all of Earthly journalism.

WASHINGTON -- International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde said today accountability, transparency, and effective communication were key components for central banks to be credible in delivering their mandates.

"Independence has served them well in the course of time and will continue to do so," Lagarde said at a news conference when asked whether some central banks were facing threats to their independence in setting monetary policy.

WHEN TROUBLE IS ON THE WAY, ONE LITTLE GIRL WILL SAVE THE DAY IN ABBY HATCHER, NICKELODEON’S BRAND-NEW ANIMATED PRESCHOOL SERIES PREMIERES ON NICK JR. AUSTRALIA


Share it: @NickJrANZ #AbbyHatcher


Nickelodeon’s brand-new animated preschool series, Abby Hatcher (created and produced by Spin Master Entertainment), tells the story of a little girl with a big heart who helps her friends, the amazing and quirky Fuzzly creatures, fix their mishaps, learn from their mistakes and negotiate their emotions. The series made its Australian debut on Monday 8th April 2019 at 8:30am on Nick Jr. Australia, with new episodes continuing to air weekdays at 8:30am on the Nick Jr. channel in Australia. Abby Hatcher (26 episodes) features a social-emotional curriculum highlighting empathy, compassion and problem-solving skills.


In Abby Hatcher, Abby is an eternally optimistic, kind-hearted seven-year-old girl who loves to lend a helping hand to others and accepts everyone--no matter how different they are. In Abby’s world, humans coexist with Fuzzlies, incredible creatures that each have their own unique abilities that make them special, and Abby’s parents’ hotel is home to many. Together with her best Fuzzly friend Bozzly, Abby goes on wild adventures to fix Fuzzly mishaps and help them in any way she can. Whenever a problem arises Abby and Bozzly always say, “Fuzzly trouble can’t delay, to the rescue, save the day!”



In the series premiere of Abby Hatcher, “When Abby Met Bozzly/Hair Flair Everywhere,” Abby meets the best friend of her dreams, a fuzzly named Bozzly, for the first time. Then, when the hotel’s salon owner Mrs. Melvin closes the salon for the day, Abby tries to help Harriet, a hair-obsessed Fuzzly, find a new hobby, when all she really wants is to style. In additional new episodes, Mo and Bo are mistaken for a snow monster, and, after taking a tumble, Otis suffers a fear of heights and becomes scared to use his elevator.

Online at nickjr.com.au and on the Nick Jr. App, parents and children can find out more about Abby Hatcher, as well as sing and dance-along to music videos and watch short-form video clips from the series. Fans can also like the official Nick Jr. Australia and New Zealand Facebook and Instagram pages for the latest Nick Jr. news, highlights, video clips and more.

Abby Hatcher made its world debut on Nickelodeon in the U.S. on Tuesday, January 1, 2019, and will be rolling out on Nickelodeon’s international channels and branded blocks throughout 2019. The series also airs on TVO and Knowledge in Canada.

Abby Hatcher is the ninth series from Spin Master Entertainment and follows on the success of PAW Patrol. The new series is overseen by executive producers Ronnen Harary and Laura Clunie.

                          A fatal outbreak of ST11 carbapenem-resistant hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae in a Chinese hospital: a molecular epidemiological study.

                          Lancet Infect Dis. 2018 01;18(1):37-46

                          Authors: Gu D, Dong N, Zheng Z, Lin D, Huang M, Wang L, Chan EW, Shu L, Yu J, Zhang R, Chen S

                          Abstract
                          BACKGROUND: Hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae strains often cause life-threatening community-acquired infections in young and healthy hosts, but are usually sensitive to antibiotics. In this study, we investigated a fatal outbreak of ventilator-associated pneumonia caused by a new emerging hypervirulent K pneumoniae strain.
                          METHODS: The outbreak occurred in the integrated intensive care unit of a new branch of the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University (Hangzhou, China). We collected 21 carbapenem-resistant K pneumoniae strains from five patients and characterised these strains for their antimicrobial susceptibility, multilocus sequence types, and genetic relatedness using VITEK-2 compact system, multilocus sequence typing, and whole genome sequencing. We selected one representative isolate from each patient to establish the virulence potential using a human neutrophil assay and Galleria mellonella model and to establish the genetic basis of their hypervirulence phenotype.
                          FINDINGS: All five patients had undergone surgery for multiple trauma and subsequently received mechanical ventilation. The patients were aged 53-73 years and were admitted to the intensive care unit between late February and April, 2016. They all had severe pneumonia, carbapenem-resistant K pneumoniae infections, and poor responses to antibiotic treatment and died due to severe lung infection, multiorgan failure, or septic shock. All five representative carbapenem-resistant K pneumoniae strains belonged to the ST11 type, which is the most prevalent carbapenem-resistant K pneumoniae type in China, and originated from the same clone. The strains were positive on the string test, had survival of about 80% after 1 h incubation in human neutrophils, and killed 100% of wax moth larvae (G mellonella) inoculated with 1 × 106 colony-forming units of the specimens within 24 h, suggesting that they were hypervirulent K pneumoniae. Genomic analyses showed that the emergence of these ST11 carbapenem-resistant hypervirulent K pneumoniae strains was due to the acquisition of a roughly 170 kbp pLVPK-like virulence plasmid by classic ST11 carbapenem-resistant K pneumoniae strains. We also detected these strains in specimens collected in other regions of China.
                          INTERPRETATION: The ST11 carbapenem-resistant hypervirulent K pneumoniae strains pose a substantial threat to human health because they are simultaneously hypervirulent, multidrug resistant, and highly transmissible. Control measures should be implemented to prevent further dissemination of such organisms in the hospital setting and the community.
                          FUNDING: Chinese National Key Basic Research and Development Program and Collaborative Research Fund of Hong Kong Research Grant Council.

Before air travel overtook trains, nearly every coast-to-coast journey included a stop there, and this flow of people and commodities made it America's central clearinghouse, laboratory, and factory. Between the end of World War II and 1960, Mies van der Rohe's glass-and-steel architecture became the face of corporate America, Ray Kroc's McDonald's changed how people eat, Hugh Hefner unveiled Playboy, and the Chess brothers supercharged rock and roll with Chuck Berry. At the University of Chicago, the atom was split and Western civilization was packaged into the Great Books. Yet even as Chicago led the way in creating mass-market culture, its artists pushed back in their own distinct voices. In literature, it was the outlaw novels of Nelson Algren (then carrying on a passionate affair with Simone de Beauvoir), the poems of Gwendolyn Brooks, and Studs Terkel's oral histories. In music, it was the gospel of Mahalia Jackson, the urban blues of Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, and the trippy avant-garde jazz of Sun Ra. In performance, it was the intimacy of Kukla, Fran, and Ollie, the "Chicago School" of television, and the improvisational comedy troupe Second City whose famous alumni are now everywhere in American entertainment. Despite this diversity, racial divisions informed virtually every aspect of life in Chicago. The chaos - both constructive and destructive - of this period was set into motion by the second migration north of African Americans during World War II. As whites either fled to the suburbs or violently opposed integration, urban planners tried to design away "blight" with projects that marred a generation of American cities. The election of Mayor Richard J. Daley in 1955 launched a frenzy of new building that came at a terrible cost - monolithic housing projects for the black community and a new kind of self-satisfied provincialism that sped up the end of Chicago's role as America's meeting place. In luminous prose, Chicago native Thomas Dyj...

                               Parking spaces at the two racecourses are available only to holders of appropriate permits issued by Hong Kong Jockey Club and any vehicles illegally parked will be towed away.

                               Please broadcast the following as soon as possible and repeat it at suitable intervals:

                               The Marine Department today (April 13) reminded masters, coxswains and persons-in-charge of vessels navigating in Hong Kong waters to proceed at a safe speed and exercise extreme caution because restricted visibility of less than 2 nautical miles has been reported.

                               Appropriate sound signals shall be made when underway or at anchor. All vessels must comply with the International Regulations for Preventing Collision at Sea.

                               Also, when radar is used without the benefit of adequate plotting facilities, the information obtained from the equipment is rather limited and should be construed accordingly.

                               Visibility reports are broadcast by the Vessel Traffic Centre (VTC) on VHF channels 02, 12, 14, 63 and 67.

                               In the event of an accident, a report shall be made immediately to the VTC at Tel: 2233 7801.

                               The brand new Lions Blood Donation Vehicle of Hong Kong Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service (BTS) commenced service today (April 13). The Under Secretary for Food and Health, Dr Chui Tak-yi; the Hospital Authority Chief Executive, Dr Leung Pak-yin, and representatives of Lions Clubs International District 303 – Hong Kong & Macao, China (Lions Clubs), officiated the launch ceremony this morning. It is hoped that the new vehicle can serve as an extended service arm for BTS in enhancing the mobility of blood collection across a wider community network.

                               Dr Leung shared in his opening speech at the ceremony that BTS first introduced the blood donation vehicle to Hong Kong in 1973, it was also the first of its type in Southeast Asia. Carrying the mission "Give Blood Save Life", it was well received by the public.

                               Dr Leung believed, "With the support and coordination from the communities, BTS' donor centres, mobile blood drive and blood donation vehicle can complement each other to enhance blood collection." He also expressed his gratitude to the Lions Clubs for its generous donation.

                               BTS will update the new vehicle's service schedule via its website, social media and HK Blood APP. The new vehicle is 11-metre long, 3.8-metre high, 2.6-metre wide and weighs 16 tonnes. With a built-in generator, the vehicle is able to operate independently and hence with greater flexibility for blood collection service.

                                    Government technology applications showcased at International ICT Expo (with photos)      Comment   Translate Page      
                               The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) is showcasing for the first time the smart lamppost and the free electronic identity (eID) at the Smart Government Pavilion at the International ICT Expo which started today (April 13). The public may also have a glimpse of various technology applications that government departments have adopted and will employ to enhance public service and develop Hong Kong into a smarter city.
                                
                               The smart lampposts to collect real-time city data will commence service in phases from mid-2019. A prototype of the smart lamppost has been set up at the Pavilion to exhibit the camera and various sensors and smart devices installed. There is also a demonstration on how data collected will facilitate city management with the aid of artificial intelligence technology and provide real-time city information to the public.
                                
                               Another highlight is the demonstration of eID, which is planned for rollout next year. Visitors can try out the quick and simple online registration and learn about the usage of this single digital identity authentication for performing online transactions with government and commercial entities.
                                
                               The OGCIO is also using the occasion to introduce the upcoming Smart Government Innovation Lab (Smart Lab) and the city dashboard. The Smart Lab will invite the industry to put forward proposals of innovative information technology applications and product suggestions for addressing challenges in public services while the city dashboard will present some livelihood-related open data such as those on traffic, weather and air quality on interactive charts and maps via data.gov.hk.
                                
                               "The Government endeavours to adopt innovation and technology in various areas and services. We hope that through the interactive exhibits at the Pavilion, the public will have a better understanding of the convenience these applications can bring to them," the Government Chief Information Officer, Mr Victor Lam, said after touring the Pavilion today.
                                
                               Other exhibits include the virtual reality technology adopted in maintenance training for seaport passenger boarding bridges; the e-Channel pre-fetch kiosk, which allows reading of smart identity card information by means of a contactless chip interface; the Post-dispatch Advice System to provide callers with more comprehensive and appropriate advice; the Single E-Lock Scheme for streamlining customs clearance processes; the Health Signs Monitoring System to help protect the safety of persons in custody; a voice recognition chatbot; and in-vehicle units to facilitate traffic management.

                               The Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, met the President of Tsinghua University and the Asian Universities Alliance (AUA), Professor Qiu Yong, at Government House at noon today (April 13) and hosted a lunch after the meeting for the 15 heads of the AUA member universities who will attend the annual AUA Summit in Hong Kong. The Secretary for Innovation and Technology, Mr Nicholas W Yang, also attended the lunch.

                               At the meeting with Professor Qiu, Mrs Lam welcomed further co-operation between Tsinghua University and higher education institutions in Hong Kong, in particular in innovation and technology (I&T) and its application, to contribute jointly to the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area as an international I&T hub. She also thanked him for the arrangement made by Tsinghua University for her to speak at the institution to introduce the latest situation of Hong Kong during her trip to Beijing earlier.

                               Addressing the lunch, Mrs Lam welcomed the visit of heads of AUA member universities to Hong Kong to attend the AUA Summit 2019 to be held tomorrow (April 14) at AUA member the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, which she is also invited to attend. She said that the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government highly supports the strengthening of co-operation among universities in Hong Kong, the Mainland and overseas. The AUA brings together top universities in the region and provides an effective platform to promote various professional exchanges among member universities, enabling the enhancement of the quality of higher education and the capability in technological innovation in the Asian region.

                               Mrs Lam said that the HKSAR Government is committed to promoting the development of I&T and establishing two world-class research clusters at the Hong Kong Science Park on healthcare technologies and artificial intelligence and robotics technologies. She encouraged the AUA to continue to deepen regional co-operation, including boosting exchanges among scientific researchers and collaboration in scientific research.

                               Pioneered by Tsinghua University, the AUA was established in Beijing in 2017 with 15 universities from 14 Asian countries and regions.

                                    S for S praises the Force for maintaining Hong Kong's law and order (with photos)      Comment   Translate Page      
                               The Secretary for Security, Mr John Lee praised the over 30,000 police officers at a passing-out parade at the Hong Kong Police College today (April 13) for their dedication in serving the community and maintaining a stable law and order situation in Hong Kong, making Hong Kong as one of the safest cities in the world.

                               Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Lee said that a total of 54,225 crime cases were recorded in 2018 in Hong Kong, down by 3.2 per cent when compared with 2017. The figure was the lowest in 45 years. The number of crimes per 100,000 population in 2018 stood at 728 cases, a decrease of four per cent when compared with 2017, and was a record low in the past 49 years.

                               Mr Lee noted that the situation of global terrorism has become increasingly complex in recent years. He said that although the threat level of Hong Kong being subject to terrorist attack is "moderate", the Government must stay vigilant and continuously enhance Hong Kong’s capability and preparedness to combat terrorism. He added that the Inter-departmental Counter-terrorism Unit established by the Security Bureau last year held its first large-scale counter-terrorism exercise last month to strengthen Hong Kong’s counter-terrorism deployment and capability.

                               Lastly, Mr Lee hoped the graduates would uphold the Force's values and fine tradition, remain steadfast in their duties and further reinforce the achievements of the Force in the past 175 years to ensure a stable law and order situation in Hong Kong.

                               A total of 34 probationary inspectors and 194 recruit police constables passed out today.

                                    HyD wins two awards at 47th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva (with photo)      Comment   Translate Page      
                               Following the winning of the Gold Award of the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2019 – Smart Mobility Award (Smart Transportation Stream) last week, the intelligent robotic system, the development of which was initiated by the Highways Department (HyD) and which was co-invented and successfully built by the HyD and the Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC), was awarded the Honorable Mention Prize of the Chinese Delegation for Invention and Innovation and a Gold Medal with Congratulations of the Jury at the 47th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva in Switzerland yesterday (April 12, Geneva time).

                               Held annually, the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva has been recognised as the most important innovation and technology exhibition of its kind in the world. It attracts exhibitors from around the globe including business enterprises, research institutions and universities to put their inventions and innovations on display. Held between April 10 and 14, this year's exhibition has attracted over 800 exhibitors from over 40 countries and regions presenting more than 1 000 inventions. The HyD and the HKPC jointly presented at the exhibition the co-invented intelligent robotic system, which is the first of its kind in the world fitted with cameras, sensors and robotic arms to understand its surroundings with full cognitive abilities for placing and collecting traffic cones and lanterns on public roads.

                               The HyD always attaches great importance to safety in road works, accords first priority to the safety of engineering site staff and has been striving to enhance safety protection for carrying out road works on public roads. Given that the engineering site staff may face higher risk when setting up and collecting traffic cones and lanterns on public roads late at night, the HyD has therefore been studying the use of advanced technology to adopt an automated approach to replace the engineering site staff in carrying out relevant works under more dangerous situations in order to protect their safety. To this end, the HyD and the HKPC have co-invented the automated intelligent robotic system suitable for use under the road conditions in Hong Kong, and are currently carrying out detailed design for the formal application of the intelligent robotic system in road works. Upon completion of design and assembly, site trials will be carried out with a view to commencing its use on public roads in the near future.

                          Students can experience being knocked down by an iron bar or witness an explosion caused by volatile gases at the Hong Kong Institute of Construction’s Safety Experience Training Centre.

                           

                          The first of its kind in Hong Kong, the 3,000 sq ft facility in Kwai Chung features eight training zones where students can interactively learn about the common hazards or causes of accidents at construction sites at its Virtual Reality Cave.

                           

                          At its Chemical & Electrical Safety Zone, students can also see how wires overheat and even feel a slight electric shock. 

                           

                          The institute hopes the students can enhance their safety awareness through such simulation-based training.  

                           

                          “We do not want to see any casualties in the industry. Moreover, if the construction environment is not safe, parents are reluctant to let the young people join the industry. So we attach special importance to safety training,” the institute’s Director Francis Wong said.

                           

                          A step ahead
                          The institute was established in October 2018 and offers more than 200 full-time and short courses.

                           

                          It aims to nurture a workforce with theoretical knowledge, professional skills, innovative ideas and safety awareness, and has been introducing innovative technological teaching elements, such as the use of simulators for welding courses.

                           

                          Supervising Instructor (Welding) Chung Kai-man said the simulators provide students with a safe learning environment.

                           

                          “In the past, when students were learning to weld, the sparks held them back. But with this simulator they can practise their skills safely. They already know how to control the welding track and speed at the construction site.”

                           

                          Enhanced skillset 
                          The institute said the courses aim to attract secondary students to the sector and help those in the field upgrade their skills.

                           

                          Chung Sze-ki learnt to install a billboard with a simulator during a 50-day crane operation course.

                           

                          “When I looked at the models at home, I originally thought cranes are easy to control. In fact, the bricks and iron bars are huge and I was afraid of them bumping into me. The simulator helps me to control them better.”

                           

                          Her coursemate Mok Wei-wu is a veteran with more than a decade’s experience in the construction industry.

                           

                          Wanting to upgrade his skills, Mr Mok recently resigned from his job to join the course.

                           

                          “If I continue to move and lift heavy objects at a construction site, I will gradually suffer from strains and one day lose my strength,” he said.

                           

                          “I hope to become a crane operator so I will not be exposed to the sun and rain. Plus, my salary will be higher too.”

                           

                          Cutting edge 
                          The institute is keeping in step with technological advancements in the construction industry’s work equipment.

                           

                          Its Director Mr Wong said: “The most expensive construction cost, in terms of per square metre, is New York. Hong Kong comes next.

                           

                          “Introducing new construction machines and techniques will lower the construction costs, enhance the productivity as well as the working environment in terms of safety.”

                           

                          The 2019-20 Budget allocated $200 million to expand the apprenticeship scheme for the construction industry.

                           

                          The institute expects to train 1,100 knowledge-based workers in the next one to two years, and increase allowances within five years to help 4,000 workers upgrade their skills.

Студент 3 курса Глеб Верещагин был сильно увлечён этими лекциями и стал мечтать о Байкале. С 1914 года работал младшим зоологом в Зоологическом музее Петербургской академии наук. Лишь в 1916 ему удалось участвовать в Байкальской экспедиции Российской Академии наук, под руководством В.Ч.Дорогостайского. С тех пор он посвятил свою жизнь исследованиям этого уникального озера. С 1919 — учёный секретарь Гидрологического института, совместно с Л.С.Бергом (1876—1950) руководил Озёрным отделом. В эти годы Г.Ю.Верещагин, наряду с исследовательской работой, отдавал много времени и общественной деятельности в Русском географическом обществе, где он являлся секретарем Озерной комиссии. В 1920—1924 годах руководил Олонецкой научной экспедицией по исследованию озёр Карелии. В начале 1925 года Глеб Юрьевич избирается учёным секретарем Комиссии Академии наук по изучению озера Байкал. Им составляется перспективный план работы этой Комиссии на пятилетку. 25 мая 1925 экспедиция под его руководством начала свои исследования на Байкале. В те годы условия работы были весьма суровыми. В распоряжении ученых имелся лишь один небольшой катер «Чайка», длиной в 9 м и с мотором в 9 лошадиных сил, который с трудом вмещал всех участников полевого отряда. В 1925—1929 Байкальская экспедиция под руководством Г.Ю.Верещагина обследовала все основные районы озера. Благодаря незаурядным организаторским способностям Г.Ю.Верещагина и его умелому руководству коллективом, результаты работы Байкальской экспедиции оказались весьма плодотворными. Исследования значительно расширились, в них принимали участие специалисты различных профилей из сторонних учреждений. Учитывая постоянно увеличивающийся интерес к Байкалу, Президиум Академии наук решил преобразовать Байкальскую экспедицию в стационарное учреждение — Байкальскую лимнологическую станцию (1928), которая, таким образом, стала форпостом Академии наук в Сибири, а Г.Ю.Верещагин — первым её директором. Колоссальная глубина и древность Байкала позволили Г.Ю.Верещагину, обладавшему огромной эрудицией в области биологии, гидрологии, гидрохимии и геоморфологии, тщательно проследить разнообразные процессы в таких условиях, которых нет ни в одном другом озере мира. Его исследования на Байкале были тесно связаны с Бассейновым управлением водных путей Восточной Сибири, Байкальским пароходством, Гидроэнергопроектом, Ангарскстроем, рыбохозяйственными организациями Иркутской области и Бурятии, которые использовали в своей работе данные по химическому, ветровому и ледовому режиму Байкала. В течение ряда лет Г.Ю.Верещагин усиленно добивался создания крупного Института озероведения в системе Академии наук, и уже в начале 1941 готовилось постановление о создании такой организации, но начавшаяся Великая Отечественная война перечеркнула эти планы. Лишь в конце 1943 в Ленинграде была создана Лаборатория озероведения Академии наук СССР с двумя Лимнологическими станциями — Байкальской и на озере Пуннус-Ярви на Карельском перешейке. Много лет спустя, в 1971 году, из Лаборатории озероведения Отделения Геолого-географических наук Академии Наук СССР, организованной по инициативе Г.Ю.Верещагина, был образован крупный Институт озероведения Российской Академии Наук. Умер Г.Ю.Верещагин 1 февраля 1944 года, похоронен на высоком берегу Байкала, на кладбище посёлка Листвянка. Г.Ю.Верещагин был очень популярен в отечественных и зарубежных научных кругах. Как крупного учёного, преданного науке, и прекрасного организатора его высоко ценили академики В.М.Комаров, О.Ю.Шмидт, В.И.Вернадский, А.П.Виноградов, В.А.Обручев и другие. За активную и плодотворную работу в области физической географии озёр Географическое общество наградило его золотой медалью имени П.П.Семёнова-Тян-Шанского. Новое направление исследования озёр, проводимое Г.Ю.Верещагиным на Байкале, вызвало большой интерес среди участников IV Международного лимнологического (озероведческого) конгресса в Риме (1927). Здесь ему присудили высшую награду — памятную медаль, почётный диплом и избрали членом Совета международного объединения лимнологов. В 1961 Байкальская лимнологическая станция была реорганизована в крупный Лимнологический институт Сибирского Отделения Академии Наук СССР. Каждые пять лет Лимнологический институт проводит международные Верещагинские научные конференции, на которых докладываются результаты новейших научных исследований Байкала. В 1960 на заводе «Ленинская кузница» в городе Киеве построено судно «Г.Ю.Верещагин», ставшее самым крупным исследовательским судном на Байкале. Его водоизмещение 560 т, длина 43,6 м, ширина палубы 7,8 м. В Музее Землеведения МГУ установлен бронзовый бюст Г.Ю.Верещагина работы скульптора В.С.Манашкина.

                          американский актёр. Родился в Селби (Англия), в семье химика и аптекаря Джона Г.Стивенса и его супруги Эммы Стивенсон. Своё детство провёл вместе с братьями Аланом и Норманом в Уэст-Йоркшире и Ланкашире. В юности работал банковским клерком, а затем — в сфере торговли. в 1930 году Стивенсон иммигрировал в США, а в 1938 году принял американское гражданство.Свою актёрскую карьеру начал с театральной сцены, а впервые на киноэкранах появился в 1937 году. Его карьера в кино продолжалась всего четыре года, но за это время актёр снялся в 36 картинах, среди которых «Красавчик Жест» (1939), «Старая дева» (1939), «Частная жизнь Елизаветы и Эссекса» (1939) и «Морской ястреб» (1940). Одну из последних своих ролей Стивенсон исполнил в 1940 году в нуаре «Письмо» с Бетти Дейвис в главной роли, за которую был номинирован на премию «Оскар». Актёр скончался в Лос-Анджелесе от сердечного приступа 29 июля 1941 года. Похоронен в Глендейле на кладбище Форест-Лаун.

                          Арнолд Джозеф Тойнби (Arnold Joseph Toynbee)
                          английский историк, родился в Лондоне. Получил образование в Уинчестерском колледже и Бейллиол-колледже Оксфордского университета. В 1913 женился на Розалинде Мёррей, дочери Гилберта Мёррея, оксфордского профессора-классика. Их сын Филип стал известным романистом. Они развелись в 1946, и в том же году Тойнби женился на своей давней помощнице Веронике Марджори Боултер. В 1919–1924 был профессором византиноведения, греческого языка, литературы и истории Лондонского университета, с 1925 до своей отставки в 1955 – научным руководителем Королевского института международных отношений и научным сотрудником Лондонского университета. В 1920–1946 – редактор «Обзора международных отношений». Во время Второй мировой войны Тойнби – директор научного отдела министерства иностранных дел Великобритании. В 1956 стал кавалером ордена Кавалеров почета. Умер Тойнби в Йорке 22 октября 1975 года. Многочисленные публикации Тойнби включают научные монографии, в том числе Западный вопрос в Греции и Турции (The Western Question in Greece and Turkey, 1922), Греческая историческая мысль (Greek Historical Thought, 1924), Исследование истории (A Study of History, 12 vols., 1934–1961), а также несколько томов очерков и лекций, опубликованных после того, как под руководством Д.Сомервелла было выпущено ставшее бестселлером сокращенное (в одном томе) изложение первых шести томов Исследования истории. Наиболее интересна публикация Гиффордовских лекций – Подход историка к религии (An Historian's Approach to Religion, 1956). Из поздних работ Тойнби отметим следующие: Америка и мировая революция (America and the World Revolution, 1962); Между Нигером и Нилом (Between Niger and Nile, 1965); Изменяющиеся города (Cities on the Move, 1970) и Константин Багрянородный и его эпоха (Constantine Porphyrogenitus and His World, 1973). Тойнби последовал за О.Шпенглером и его Закатом Европы в отрицании традиционной концепции единства мировой истории, предложив взамен сравнительное исследование культур, обнаруживающих поразительное сходство в жизненном цикле – возникновении, развитии и упадке. Однако он отвергал шпенглеровскую теорию культур как организмов, имеющих продолжительность жизни в 1000 лет, и в качестве причин их упадка называл нравственное вырождение и утрату творческого подхода к возникающим проблемам. По сравнительным таблицам Тойнби выходило, что в Западной Европе во времена Наполеоновских войн и в Габсбургской монархии в 1526–1918, несмотря на Тридцатилетнюю войну, Первую мировую войну и т.п., царил мир. Однако и сам Тойнби, и многие его поклонники были склонны отмахиваться от указаний на неточности, считая эти поправки заурядными общими местами; по их мнению, имело значение только то, что более или менее явно следовало из томов 1–6, а именно что возвращение к католицизму в той или иной его форме могло бы остановить закат западной цивилизации, начавшийся вместе с эпохой Реформации. Тома 7–10, опубликованные в 1954 после 15-летнего перерыва, уже не содержали ни этой концепции, ни многих других прежних идей. Показав в «Приложении» к 6-му тому, что множество высказываний и эпизодов жизни Иисуса Христа можно найти в дохристианском эллинистическом фольклоре и что само христианство возникло из религиозного синкретизма, Тойнби отвергал претензии христианства на исключительность. Наша цивилизация, считал он, погибнет; но она, подобно эллинизму, сослужит свою историческую роль, если, умирая, породит новую синкретическую религию. Необыкновенная эрудиция Тойнби несомненна, однако его концепция и методы были подвергнуты уничтожающей критике. Популярность Тойнби – в значительной мере феномен американской культуры, в Англии у него больше критиков, чем поклонников. Тем не менее его идеи об историческом значении религии и плодотворности надматериальных ориентиров, разумеется, были вполне здравыми, и даже его критики признавали, что ему удалось их популяризировать.

                          1891
                          Бхимрао Рамджи Амбедкар (डॉ. भीमराव रामजी आंबेडकर, также известен под прозвищем «Бабасахиб»)
                          индийский юрист, политический деятель, лидер «неприкасаемых». Основной автор проекта Индийской конституции. Посмертно награждён высшим индийским орденом Бхарат Ратна. Буддист-реформатор: по его инициативе неприкасаемые массово обращались в буддизм, не признающий кастовых различий. Резко критиковал ислам и индуизм. Родом из народа маратхи. Предки по мужской линии в течение нескольких поколений служили в армии Британской Ост-Индской компании. Амбедкар был одним из первых неприкасаемых, получивших образование в колледже. Получил степень доктора права и ряд других степеней за экономические и политические исследования (в частности, в Колумбийском университете и Лондонской школе экономики). Вернулся в Индию известным учёным, несколько лет практиковал как юрист, после чего начал политическую деятельность как борец за права неприкасаемых. К 1930 г. Амбедкар, организовав ряд публичных акций, стал широко известным индийским политиком. Он критиковал ведущие партии Индии за недостаточное внимание к проблеме кастовой системы. Амбедкар был последовательным критиком взглядов Махатмы Ганди и его сторонников из партии Индийский национальный конгресс. Несмотря на то, что Ганди критиковал кастовые различия и даже объявлял себя «одним из» людей низших каст, его взгляды были романтичными и идеалистическими. Амбедкар считал термин «хариджан» («дети Бога»), предложенный Ганди для обозначения неприкасаемых, презрительным, а склонность Ганди идеализировать деревенский уклад жизни считал вредной, пропагандировал распространение образования среди париев и их переезд в города. Амбедкар считал, что Ганди слишком мягко критикует кастовую систему, отмечая отдельные несправедливости, но не стремясь уничтожить систему как таковую. За свои радикальные взгляды Амбедкар стал крайне непопулярным среди ортодоксальных индусов, даже среди тех, которые ранее осуждали бесправие неприкасаемых, поскольку требовал полного равноправия, а не только смягчения положения. В то же время, Амбедкар требовал предоставить неприкасаемым отдельные избирательные округа, против чего резко возражал Ганди — он боялся раскола индийского общества. Когда в 1932 году британцы согласились принять предложение Амбедкара о раздельных избирательных округах для представителей разных каст, Ганди, находившийся в заключении, начал голодовку «до смертельного исхода». Голодовка Ганди обеспечила ему широкую поддержку среди ортодоксов во всей Индии. Амбедкар, опасаясь беспорядков в случае смерти Ганди, был вынужден уступить. В 1935—1937 годах был ректором Правительственного юридического колледжа (Бомбей). В том же году его жена Рамабаи умерла от длительной болезни.
                          14 апреля 1891 года родился Бхимрао Рамджи АМБЕДКАРpost-154-130275952429 (700x406, 281Kb)
                          Тогда же Амбедкар публично объявил, что отрекается от индуизма и будет искать новую религию, которая бы давала неприкасаемым равные права с представителями других каст. В 1936 году Амбедкар основал Независимую трудовую партию, которая на выборах 1937 г. получила 15 мест в Центральной законодательной ассамблее. В том же году он опубликовал свою книгу «Уничтожение касты» (The Annihilation of Caste), где он критиковал не только кастовую систему как таковую, но и индуистских религиозных лидеров. Амбедкар служил в Консультативном комитете обороны, а также министром труда в Исполнительном комитете вице-короля (колониальном правительстве Индии). В 1941—1945 годах опубликовал ряд вызвавших противоречивую реакцию книг и памфлетов, в том числе «Мысли о Пакистане» (англ. Thoughts on Pakistan), в которой критиковал требование Мусульманской лиги создать отдельное мусульманское государство Пакистан. В книге «Что Конгресс и Ганди сделали для неприкасаемых» (What Congress and Gandhi Have Done to the Untouchables) он усилил свою критику Ганди и Индийского национального конгресса, обвиняя их в лицемерии. В книге «Кем были шудры?» (Who were the Shudras?) Амбедкар попытался объяснить происхождение касты шудр, то есть низшей касты в Индии, ниже которой были только неприкасаемые. Он также сделал акцент на отличиях шудр от неприкасаемых. На выборах 1946 года его партия получила небольшое число голосов. В 1948 году написал новую книгу «Неприкасаемые: тезисы о происхождении неприкасаемости» (The Untouchables: A Thesis on the Origins of Untouchability), где обвинил индуизм: «Индусская цивилизация … это дьявольский замысел с целью подавить и поработить человечество. Её настоящее имя — позор. Что ещё можно сказать о цивилизации, которая создала массу людей… с которыми обращаются, как если бы они не были людьми, и одно лишь прикосновение которых считается загрязняющим?» С ещё более суровой критикой Амбедкар выступил против ислама и его течений в Южной Азии (не в последнюю очередь благодаря его пропаганде ислам — наименее распространённая религия среди неприкасаемых). Он одобрил разделение Британской Индии на Пакистан и Индию, и в то же время осудил детские браки в исламском обществе, а также бесправное положение женщин. Он писал: «Нет таких слов, которые бы точно выразили великое множество зла, заключённого в многожёнстве и наличии наложниц, причиняющих страдания мусульманской женщине. Рассмотрим кастовую систему. Считается очевидным, что ислам свободен от рабства и каст. (Но пока рабство существовало), его поддержка в основном приходила от ислама и исламских стран. Похвальны указания Пророка в Коране, касающиеся справедливого и гуманного обращения с рабами, однако фактически в Исламе нет ничего, что бы помогло преодолеть это проклятие (то есть рабство). И хотя рабство исчезло, касты среди мусульман сохранились.» Амбедкар писал, что мусульманское общество ещё больше преисполнено социальным злом по сравнению с индуистским. Он критиковал мусульман за то, что они прикрывают кастовую систему такими эвфемизмами, как «братство» и т. п. Он также критиковал распространённую среди мусульман классовую дискриминацию таких групп, как «арзалы» (аналог парий в индуизме), а также угнетение женщин (система «пурда»). Он писал, что хотя «пурда» практикуется также индусами, лишь среди мусульман эта система санкционирована самой религией, а не только традицией. Он критиковал исламский фанатизм, считая, что буквальное толкование Корана сделало исламское общество очень жёстким, неспособным к изменениям. Он также указывал, что в отличие от Турции или Ирана, индийским мусульманам не удалось реформировать своё общество. Несмотря на свою жёсткую критику в адрес М.А.Джинны и его последователей из Мусульманской лиги, он поддержал идею разделения Индии на мусульманскую и индуистскую часть, поддержал образование Пакистана. Он считал, что религиозное разделение — меньшее зло по сравнению с этническим национализмом (особенно учитывая большое количество народностей в Индии). Он указывал на такие прецеденты в истории, как распад Османской империи в 1918—1922 годах и разделение Чехословакии после оккупации её Германией. В то же время, он предвидел, что образование двух государств по религиозному признаку приведёт к столкновениям, значительной миграции людей, приграничным спорам. В связи с этим он писал: «Пакистан должен оправдать своё существование». Несмотря на падение своей популярности как политика, спорные взгляды и критику со стороны Махатмы Ганди и Индийского национального конгресса, Амбедкар имел репутацию очень опытного юриста и учёного.

                          После того, как Индия получила независимость 15 августа 1947 года, новое правительство предложило Амбедкару стать первым министром юстиции (он принял предложение). 29 августа Амбедкар возглавил комитет по подготовке проекта Конституции Индии. При этом он опирался на прецеденты буддийской сангхи, поскольку в буддийской традиции были известны голосование с использованием бюллетеней, процедуры проведения дебатов, прецедентное право, регламентация бюрократических процедур. Опыт сангхи был адаптирован к реалиям Индии — олигархическая система правления, деление на племена и т. д. Текст, подготовленный Амбедкаром, предусматривал конституционные гарантии широкого круга гражданских свобод, в том числе свободу вероисповедания, отмену принципа «неприкасаемости» и запрет на любые формы дискриминации. Амбедкар требовал широких экономических и социальных прав для женщин, а также добился поддержки Ассамблеи в создании квот на гражданской службе, в школах и колледжах для представителей ущемлённых каст. Конституция была принята 26 ноября 1949 года. Амбедкар ушёл в отставку с должности министра в 1951 году после того, как парламент забаллотировал его проект Индийского кодекса, предусматривавший равенство полов в наследовании, браке и экономических отношениях, несмотря на поддержку со стороны Неру и ряда других лидеров ИНК. В 1952 году Амбедкар проиграл выборы в нижнюю палату парламента, но был назначен депутатом верхней палаты в марте 1952 года и оставался им до самой смерти. В 1950-е гг. внимание Амбедкара привлёк буддизм, и он совершил путешествие на Цейлон, чтобы присутствовать на съезде буддийских монахов и учёных. Вскоре Амбедкар публично объявил, что пишет новую книгу о буддизме, и как только она будет закончена, он совершит формальное обращение в эту веру. В 1954 году он дважды посетил Бирму; во второй раз — чтобы принять участие в 3-й конференции Всемирного общества буддистов в Рангуне. В 1955 году он основал Буддийское общество Индии (Bharatiya Bauddha Mahasabha). Его книга «Будда и его Дхамма» была окончена в 1956 году и опубликована посмертно. 14 октября 1956 года Амбедкар организовал формальную публичную церемонию посвящения в Нагпуре. Формальным завершением обращения была традиционная процедура получения от монаха Трёх Драгоценностей (Будда, Дхарма, Сангха) и Пяти Предписаний. Одновременно с ним в буддизм обратились около 500 000 его сторонников. Позже в честь этого события на месте посвящения соорудили ступу Дикшабхуми. Приняв 22 обета, Амбедкар и его сторонники явно осудили и отвергли индуизм и его философию. Затем он отправился в Катманду (Непал), чтобы принять участие в 4-й Всемирной буддийской конференции. 2 декабря 1956 года он окончил свою книгу «Буддизм или Карл Маркс». В 1948 году у Амбедкара был обнаружен диабет. Из-за ухудшения здоровья, в частности, зрения, он был прикован к постели с июня по октябрь 1954 года. В течение последующих двух лет его здоровье ухудшалось, и он умер во сне в своём доме 6 декабря 1956 года, вскоре после завершения своего последнего труда «Будда и его Дхамма». Оставил после себя немало записок и неоконченных трудов. Кремирован по буддийскому обычаю. Его пережила вторая жена Шарда Кабир (в браке Савита Амбедкар). Она принадлежала к касте брахманов, обратилась в буддизм. Внук Амбедкара неоднократно избирался в парламент Индии. В Дели возведён Мемориал Амбедкара, а его день рождения отмечается как государственный праздник. В день рождения и в день смерти каждый год около полумиллиона его последователей собираются в его мемориале в Мумбаи. Несмотря на противоречивую репутацию Амбедкара и остро негативное отношение к нему мусульман, он внёс немалый вклад в развитие общественной мысли Индии. В частности, он пробудил в Индии интерес к буддизму, который в этой стране традиционно находился на периферии. Политическая философия Амбедкара дала толчок к возникновению большого количества политических партий, изданий и профсоюзов, защищающих интересы неприкасаемых, особенно в его родном штате Махараштра. Массовые церемонии обращения в буддизм проводились и после его смерти. Некоторые индийские мыслители под влиянием трудов Амбедкара пришли к выводу, что британские колониальные власти обеспечивали в Индии большее равенство между кастами, чем в годы независимости. С другой стороны, расширение прав неприкасаемых привело к увеличению стычек между ними и ортодоксальными индуистами. В 1994 году статуя Амбедкара в Мумбаи была осквернена — неизвестный провокатор повесил на неё гирлянду обуви (в Индии прикосновение к чужой обуви считается унижением). Это привело к вспышке насилия, забастовки парализовали город более чем на неделю. Во время подобных волнений в следующем году статуя была разрушена. Представители высших каст в штате Тамилнад также неоднократно нападали на местных буддистов. С другой стороны, неприкасаемые, обратившиеся в буддистов, далеко не всегда вели себя с буддийским смирением: нередко они оскверняли индусские храмы, заменяя изображения богов портретом Амбедкара. Радикальные последователи Амбедкара из «Движения буддийских пантер» (по аналогии с «Чёрными пантерами» в США) даже пытались убить учёных, критиковавших взгляды Амбедкара на буддизм.

Вел раскопки в Шотландии, Северной Ирландии, на Оркнейских островах (Скара-Брей). Основные труды по древнейшей истории Европы и Востока, в которых Ч, опираясь на труды советских исследователей, предложил материалистическое обоснование исторических процессов. Ч выступал против "теории миграционизма", объяснявшей изменения культуры переселениями народов, выдвигая тезис о самостоятельности культурного развития. Исследовал возникновение и развитие земледелия — "неолитическую революцию", переход от присваивающего хозяйства древнего каменного века к производящему хозяйству эпохи неолита. Основным фактором общественного прогресса считал эволюцию экономики, проблему происхождения государственности сводил к вопросу о возникновении городов ("городская революция"), не уделяя должного внимания социальным отношениям. Погиб в горах близ Сиднея 19 октября 1957 года.

                          The Sevens World Series continues its brief jaunt around Asia this weekend with the next stop o the tour being Singapore.

                          The World Sevens Series heads for Singapore this week and the tiny South-East Asian country is set for two days of pulsating and crucial sevens action. There are only three rounds remaining in this year's series and things are extremely tight at the top of the standings with only seven points separating current log toppers, the United States, and the second-placed Fijians, who bagged their fifth successive Hong Kong title last weekend.

                          Singapore 2018 Finish: Champions

                          The Fijians were in scintillating form last weekend topping a group that featured New Zealand, Australia and Kenya before beating Argentina, the United States and then finally France to claim their fifth successive Hong Kong title.

                          While don't boast as successful a record in Singapore as they Hong Kong, they still are the joint most successful team at the event having won two of the seven events held in the country. The most recent of these victories came last year where they beat Australia 28-22 in the final.

                          Singapore Finish 2018: Ninth

                          The'States have been on something of a lean streak since their home tournament victory finishing fourth in Vancouver and following that up with a fifth-place finish at last week's Hong Kong Sevens. While these aren't the worst of finishes, the problem for the USA is that the Fijians have won the last two events and are now breathing down their necks on the Series log.

                          Singapore hasn't been kind to the Americans over the years and they are yet to win a tournament in the country. They did manage to finish the 2017 edition of the tournament as runners-up, however, and another runners-up result would put them in a handy position headed into the final two rounds, especially if the Fijians finish below them in Singapore.

                          New ZealandSingapore 2018 Finish: Fifth

                          The New Zealander's are the joint most successful side in Singapore having won two tournaments here just like their Fijian counterparts. They did struggle at the event last season though and only managed a fifth-place finish.

                          They currently lie third on the Series standings and will need to win at least two more tournaments if they are to challenge the Americans and Fijians for the Series title.

                           Like the United States, New Zealand have struggled for form since departing Las Vegas with the men from the 'land of the long white cloud' finishing sixth in Vancouver and seventh in Hong Kong. They do have the talent to bounce back in Singapore, however.

                          2018 Singapore Finish: 15th

                          While the French have a rather poor recent record in Singapore, this tournament does provide shock winners on a regular basis with Canada and Kenya winning two of the last three events staged in the country.

                          Le Blue have been in fine form of late as well, finishing the previous two legs of this season's circuit in second-place.

                          With a huge price tag on their heads for a tournament win, it may well be worth investing a very small stake in this French outfit.

                          Verdict: Fiji
                          A win here could well see the Islanders move above the USA on the series standings with only two legs of the 2018/19 season remaining. This is the only motivating factor Gareth Barber's men will need this weekend.

                                    Chinese Leaders Leverage Media To Shape How The World Perceives China      Comment   Translate Page      
                          "A thousand newspapers with the same front page" is how the Chinese have for decades described the enforced uniformity of the country's state-controlled media. Now, one face increasingly dominates those front pages. It belongs to China's president, Xi Jinping, who has gone to extraordinary lengths to control the narrative about China. "The party controls the media, and of course, that means it controls the message," says University of Hong Kong media expert David Bandurski. "And basically, Xi Jinping is the message." That message has gotten mixed results. Often, it's what China says, not what it does, that makes the deepest impression. Nevertheless, it is a prime example of how shaping the world's perceptions of their country has climbed toward the top of the Chinese leadership's agenda. The trend is evident, for example, at the China Daily , the country's top English-language newspaper, by circulation. "Our motto used to be, 'Let China go out into the world; let the world understand

                          Restored Republic via a GCR as of April 14 2019

                          Compiled 14 April 12:01 am EST by Judy Byington, MSW, LCSW, ret. CEO, Child Abuse Recovery, Author, “Twenty Two Faces: the biography of Jenny Hill.”As a young child Jenny was tortured by a Satanic coven under direction of a CIA Operative, forced to witness a child sacrifice and save for divine intervention, was almost killed herself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F626Lsrdwg4 Articles on a CIA/Vatican Ninth Circle Child Sacrifice Cult: http://beforeitsnews.com/contributor/pages/243/590/stories.html

                          Below is a summary of information from the Internet. It would be up to the individual reader to do their own research and decide whether or not it is valid. A Special Thank You to Martha for her untiring research, to Dale who keeps me in line and Ken who uncovers almost unlimited intel on pedophilia to help us Save the Children.

                          Patience is a Virtue. Having Virtue is a sign of a good moral being. Good moral beings have the power to overcome evil and change the world. In all your giving, please don’t forget exploited children.


                          Judy Note: Zim redemption notification and receipt of 800#s for currency exchangers to set apts at special redemption/ exchange centers and negotiate for higher rates was expected sometime over the weekend and at least by Mon. April 15 – which was the start date for Tier 5, the general public, to exchange in banks at their front screen rates.

                          Mon. April 15 was the date around the Muller Report release – which when combined with expectations of Assange spilling the beans and news around Obama’s former White House attorney’s indictment – was bound to take up Headlines, along with a Stock Market bust – and cover up buzz around our appointments – the monies from which should bring the Stock Market back (after having crashed US Inc.’s big corporations that had flourished under war contracts and use of Cabal’s fiat monies).

                          April 15 was tax day. The defunct IRS was no longer taking our monies as it now funneled to the new US Treasury in Reno. Mon. April 15 was also the day when over 90,000 sealed indictments were expected to be filed against global elites in federal courts across the nation. Litigation on those indictments were ongoing in federal courts and at GITMO.

                          It was my understanding that Zim redemption would be done exclusively by a certain bank, where they would adjust your rate according to what you asked for in your Humanitarian Plan. Regular banks were not expected to do Zim redemption. It was advised to hold onto your Zim and currencies until validated instructions were made available, do not give them to anyone including groups or group leaders, redeem all you bought yourself and keep a constant eye on your Zim and currency during your exchange/ redemption. There were a lot of sneaky people out there who would try to take advantage.

                          A. April 13 2019 Sat. Update, MarkZ: MarkZ Saturday Q&A 4-13-19 "Positioning and Big Expectations" https://www.dinarrecaps.com/our-blog/markz-saturday-qa-4-13-19-positioning-and-big-expectations https://www.twitch.tv/videos/410448928## https://www.pscp.tv/w/1zqKVayoqWaxB MarkZ Disclaimer: Please consider everything on this call as my opinion. People who take notes do not catch everything and its best to watch the video so that you get everything in context. Be sure to consult a professional for any financial decisions

                          1. There was very little news overnight, other than package positioning and expectation of things happening this afternoon Sat. April 13.

                          2. I received one very excited call from the attorney who helped set up my SKR. He said our funding was in place, CMKX was in position and said they could see the numbers.

                          3. Pkgs delivery today Sat. April 13 and tomorrow Sun. April 14. Omegas were part of the PP's – part of the St. Germaine Trust and were expected today as well. There was expectation that some delivery would come this afternoon. There has been bank pinging today Sat. April 13.

                          4. nflemingjr: Part of the problem on CMKX was that they had to be paid in the new currency.

                          5. If package deliveries were in force tonight Sat. April 13, I expected 800 numbers tonight or tomorrow Sun. April 14.

                          6. There was no holdup, just logistics as they positioned for release.

                          7. Paymasters were being made liquid so we could go. It was going to be a shotgun start.

                          8. Saturday info tends to come out late in the afternoon.

                          9. I am told 800# Sunday evening April 14 or before so that appointment's could start on Monday morning April 15. This just made logistical sense.

                          10. nflemingjr: Anytime the 800 numbers would be out.

                          11. nflemingjr: The final rates were locked in last night Fri. April 12 after the banks in Hawaii closed and have been put on the screen as of last night. Paymasters were reporting that they could see the funds in their accounts.

                          12. Yes I have also been told that. They report they can physically see them and it was positioned for a shotgun release. (Fleming was very connected and he has very good information).

                          13. nflemingjr: I am waiting for the rates now. Yes they are doing testing today.

                          14. I am being told same thing. There is a lot of testing and a lot of pinging. There is a whole lot to watch today.

                          15. Member: Last I heard from a Hong Kong Source was that 800#s go out Monday Night (USA), April 15.

                          16. I am told all packages would be delivered by USPS. Inside would be a 100k debit card with instant access as soon as we called and activated it.

                          17. nflemingjr: There are some things that I can say and there are some things I cannot say because I will get chewed out.

                          18. nflemingjr: They waited for the banks to close in Hawaii before posting.

                          19. Member: So do you think the time between ring on your doorbell with CMKX and release of 800s to you will be within hours? MZ: Yes within hours. It will be a shotgun start.

                          20. I am told we are all done in Iraq, just waiting for the CBI to announce it.

                          21. nflemingjr: The CBI in Iraq is an independent agency from the government and does not need the permission from their government to RI.

                          22. In case we are still under old tax laws don't use any word but "exchange.” Do not say “cash in.”

                          23. I am still saying 99.9% that we would be in the banks on Mon. April 15.

                          24. I have not heard anything on Peticelli bonds yet but I have heard Mexican gold bonds are ready to process by Mon. April 15 am. This was very exciting.

                          B. April 13 2019 Philip Tilton: http://dinaresgurus.blogspot.com/2019/04/philip-tilton-its-about-to-go-down-13.html Beta Testing today among groups. It’s about to go down.

                          C. April 12 2019 11:12 pm EST Bank Story, Sarah: "Got a Date from my Local Bank" by Sarah - 4.12.19 I made a phone call to my local bank here in Province of Quebec, Canada for a technical issue online and asked the teller about the upcoming revaluation of currencies. He said that on April 15 everything will be in place and to call back. I could not buy Dong, Dinar or Zim from them but he said they would exchange them and that I would certainly be richer.

                          D. April 12 2019 11:13 pm EST Bank Story, Derek: Talked to HSBC Today" by Derek - 4.12.19 I talk to a lady at HSBC in Philadelphia bank today (April 12) and asked her if they were doing the Zim Bond Currency exchange. It was interesting how she said to me “Not as of today we are not” with a smile! She then asked me how much I had. I told her. She said to hold on to it. So I took that as that it would be soon. I am sure she couldn't say much about it.

                          E. April 12 2019 11:18 pm EST Fraud Alert, Tony: "Fraud Alert" by Tony - 4.12.19
                          Just a FYI. I received a notice from my WF account that someone tried signing my card up for their Zelle money transfer program and it wasn't me! The only transactions on that account were my recent purchases of additional currency from Treasury Vault, BuyIQD.com and TravelEx. My suspicions are the first two. I don't think TravelEx would do it but idk. WF said it was a merchant simply using a Visa name otherwise no other merchant info. These companies of course know we are about to receive big money and wish to steal it! Needless to say that account is now closed, but I wanted to warn all of you that one of these companies is out to steal your money, so check your accounts and be very cautious as you proceed forward and if you purchase from one of these companies. Tony

                          H. The Global Currency Reset Past, Present, Future:

                          Sun. March 24: The Mueller Report exonerated President Trump and officially turned on the RV process at the new US Treasury offices in Reno, Atlanta and Chicago, where personnel were told to keep it quiet.

                          MZ: there was very little news overnight.. other then package positioning and expectation of things happening this afternoon .

                          I got one very excited call..he’s the attorney who helped set up my SKR…He said our funding is in place…..CMKX in position.. he said they can see the numbers..

                          I am still excited but had been hoping we would be doing cartwheels already this morning

                          Mr C. has not been paid as of 30 mins ago...he is part of the dollar refunding project

                          Pkgs today and tomorrow.. Omega expected today as well…..Omegas are part of the PP's…part of the St. Germaine Trust. ….. expectation: some delivery this afternoon...there has been bank pinging today..

                          nflemingjr: Part of the problem on CMKX is that they have to be paid in the new currency

                          Member: Destiny, Alpha, Farm Claims, Bergavin etc.

                          MZ: If package deliveries are in force tonight ….I expect 800 numbers tonight or tomorrow.

                          MZ: No holdup…. just logistics as they position for release.

                          MZ: Paymasters: they are being made liquid so we can go ...It is going to be a shotgun start

                          MZ: Saturday info tends to come out late in the afternoon

                          Q: DO YOU (ANTICIPATE) DOING A STREAM TONIGHT??

                          MZ: "Could" have a stream this afternoon or tonight...will send out a tweet if I do so...

                          Q: when do you guess 800#?

                          MZ: I am told 800# Sunday evening or before is the target for us is so that appointment's can start on Monday morning ..this just makes logistical sense…

                          nflemingjr: Anytime the 800 numbers will be out

                          nflemingjr: The final rates were locked in last night after the banks in Hawaii and have been put on the screen as of yet as of last night. Paymasters are reporting that they can see the funds in their accounts.

                          MZ: yes I have also been told that… ..they report they can physically see them and it positioned for a shotgun release,…..Just so you all know…….Fleming is very connected and he has very good information

                          Q: @nflemingjr are they still just doing tests today ?

                          nflemingjr: I am waiting for the rates now. Yes they are doing testing today

                          MZ: I am being told same thing...there is a lot of testing and a lot of pinging…there is a whole lot to watch today.

                          Q: Are the PTB's not up for giving us an NDA prep? Sure seems to me it would grease the skids, but what do I know?

                          MZ: I have asked a number of bankers and none are willing to bite yet.

                          Q: : Are packages being delivered by USPS and do they have a debit card in them?

                          MZ: I am told all delivered will be by USPS …. And inside is a 100k debit card with instant access as soon as we call and activate it

                          Member: : So do you think the time between ring on your doorbell with CMKX and release of 800s to you will be within hours?

                          MZ: Yes within hours...It will be a shotgun start

                          MZ: I am told we are all done in Iraq …just waiting for the CBI to announce it,,,..Ministers do not need to be announced in Iraq...

                          Q: Mark will the exchange center take all denomination of zim example 5 billion . 200 or 500 million zimbobway notes in first basket 2008-2009 year?

                          Member: : ZEROS - Trillion notes - Six zeros, Billion Notes - Three zeros. NO ZEROS - Million notes. THESE ZEROS WILL BE IN FRONT OF THE RATE AMOUNT NOT OFF THE BONDS!!! EX: .00000033

                          Member: As of the moment No zeros in front of rate offered

                          Member: The Zero Issue on the Zim still goes back to the Zimbabwe Law concerning changing the denomination value on it's currency. Even though it has NOW been deemed the 2008 AA/AB series are BOND NOTES because of the paper the paper Germany printed that series on is why the zeros can not be removed from the bonds but placed before the rate. ONLY two adjustments are allowed per year.

                          Member: One more time on the 2nd basket:Second Currency Basket: Mongolia South African Indonesia Bangladesh South Korea Pakistani West African CFA FRANC Iranian Rial if it doesn't go in 1st basket

                                    I&T a policy priority: CE      Comment   Translate Page      

                          Innovation and technology is a policy priority for my Government and an area of progressive growth and boundless promise for our universities. Hong Kong has what it takes to be successful in this field. To start with, we have world-class research capabilities. Four Hong Kong universities rank among the world's top 100. That includes the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology, a founding member of the Asian Universities Alliance (AUA). Let me add that this prestigious university is among the top young universities in the world, leading the way in science and engineering-related subjects.

                           

                          Hong Kong's technology research strengths include biotechnology, artificial intelligence and robotics. To expand on these and other areas of excellence, we have in recent years put in place numerous policies and programmes to promote research and development at our universities. Our Innovation & Technology Fund, for example, supports both applied and forward-looking R&D projects undertaken by our universities. We also have the Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities under the fund, which enables university professors and students to start technology companies and commercialise their R&D results.

                           

                          In January this year, we launched the Partnership Research Programme under the fund. It sponsors R&D projects undertaken by private companies in collaboration with local universities. There is also a dedicated programme which funds universities engaged in midstream research.

                           

                          On top of the above, our Innovation & Technology Fund assists universities in their technology transfer. And, I'm pleased to note, R&D results among our universities are encouraging. A startup linked with Hong Kong Polytechnic University, for example, developed soft contact lenses and spectacle lenses that can retard the progression of myopia in children. Its related defocus-incorporated-multiple-segments technology won the Grand Prize at last year's International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva. The research behind this breakthrough was funded by our Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities that I mentioned just now. By the way, I am thrilled to learn from yesterday's news and this morning's newspapers that this year's Geneva Exhibition of Inventions' Grand Prize also goes to a Hong Kong company, a startup at Science Park, with a water-based manufacturing process to recycle and reuse lithium battery as its winning entry.

                           

                          Excellent work is also being done by the 16 State Key Labs and six local branches of Chinese National Engineering Research Centres here, which are funded in full or in part by the Innovation & Technology Fund. Hosted by Hong Kong universities, their achievements include the new stress-tolerant soybean cultivar, and the world's first scientific model for predicting metal toxicity in marine environments and bodies of water. Let me add that Prof Dennis Lo, Director of the State Key Lab of Translational Oncology, was named among the Top 20 Translational Researchers for two consecutive years by the world-renowned journal Nature Biotechnology. Prof Lo developed a noninvasive prenatal diagnostic technology that has benefited millions of pregnant women around the world. And SenseTime, a home-grown technology company in the Hong Kong Science Park founded by Prof Tang Xiaoou has developed into the world's most valuable AI startup in just a little over three years.

                           

                          It's all very encouraging, which is why we continue to expand our support – through facilitating policies and considerable investment at some US$12.5 billion in the past two years. This fiscal year, my Government doubled annual funding under our Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities. Each university now gets more than US$1 million a year. We've done the same for the technology transfer office of each university, which means a doubling of funding to more than US$1 million a year. As for our State Key Labs and the Hong Kong Branches of Chinese National Engineering Research Centres, their annual funding has also been doubled to US$1.3 million.

                           

                          And to boost our impressive talent base, my Government launched the Postdoctoral Hub last August under the Innovation & Technology Fund. It funds universities and other organisations in their recruitment of post-doctoral talent for R&D work. The Researcher Programme also supports them in the hiring of local graduates to assist in R&D projects. Since February, the maximum time period for these two programmes has been extended to three years. Response is overwhelming with the Researcher Programme having sponsored over 3,800 local graduates to join the I&T industry and the Postdoctoral Hub Programme having sponsored 360 postdoctoral talents to pursue a career in R&D.

                           

                          We are, in short, committed to helping our universities realise their full R&D potential. Our more ambitious goal, however, is to help build an international I&T hub here in Hong Kong. That includes the establishment of two world-class research clusters at our Science Park - one targeting healthcare technologies, the other AI and robotics. In each case, we are inviting renowned universities, research institutions and companies from all over the world to look to Hong Kong for their future.

                           

                          The response has been encouraging, and from such prestigious universities as Harvard, Stanford and Johns Hopkins in the US, Imperial College and University College London in the UK, the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany and the Institut Pasteur in France. From the Mainland of China, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Tsinghua University are amongst the active project proponents. In all, we've received nearly 50 proposals to date, and the first research institutions will be setting up their laboratories in two brand new buildings at the Science Park before the end of this year.

                           

                          We are also building unprecedented connections and opportunity through the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. The city cluster comprises the two Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao and nine major cities in Guangdong, and each of the 11 cities will contribute their respective strengths. The Outline Development Plan for the Greater Bay Area was promulgated by the Central Government in February this year, and the goal of creating an international I&T hub for the Greater Bay Area occupies a very prominent part of the plan.

                           

                          To that end, we are strengthening our collaboration with the Mainland on the I&T front under the "one country, two systems" principle. With the support of the Central Government, our local universities and research institutions are now eligible to apply for state funding on science and technology and the approved funds will be remitted to Hong Kong. Also in last year, we signed a co-operation arrangement with the Mainland's Ministry of Science & Technology, which serves as an action guide and framework for us to enhance co-operation in scientific research, nurturing of talents, transfer of results, etc. We also entered into a memorandum of understanding with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which will set up an affiliated institution here in Hong Kong to facilitate its research institutes to participate in the research clusters I mentioned earlier. And we've established a Greater Bay Area academician alliance to promote co-operation among academicians from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering. They will help advise on the Greater Bay Area’s technological development. 

                           

                          We would like to see more world-renowned universities and research institutions joining us, both for the research clusters being set up in Hong Kong and for the Greater Bay Area development. That is why university visits are now almost a must-see on my official itinerary overseas. Last week, during my trip to Japan, I visited the University of Tokyo, a member of the AUA, and had a very fruitful meeting with President Gonokami.

                           

                          While we are all excited about science and technological innovation, we must not forget about sustainable development, or the broader humanity issues, without which there will be little social and ecological harmony. I am glad to note that sustainable development is also a main theme to be discussed at this Presidents Forum.

                           

                          Hong Kong definitely realises the importance of sustainable development. And the Government has rolled out various environmental blueprints and measures to tackle environmental degradation.

                           

                          Chief Executive Carrie Lam gave these remarks at the Asian Universities Alliance Summit 2019 Presidents Forum on April 14.

                          Hong Kong people’s life expectancy has gradually increased. By 2030, one in every four Hongkongers is expected to be aged 65 or over. As the elderly are more susceptible to chronic diseases, one immediate question is how the public health system, which is already suffering from space and manpower shortages, can keep up with the change.In view of this, the city needs more and better health promotion schemes to combat the rise of chronic diseases. Can AI play a part?Many factors affect health,…

                          First Things
                          By Thomas F. Farr 
                          May 2019

                          We are witnessing a global crisis in religious freedom, wherein roughly three-quarters of the world’s people live in nations where religion is highly or very highly restricted. China presents a particularly troubling case. The assault on religion currently taking place under President Xi Jinping is the most comprehensive attempt to manipulate and control religious communities in that country since the Cultural Revolution. Under Sam Brownback, ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom, America’s religious freedom diplomacy is more effective than ever. But it can do even more to address the problem of religious persecution in China, if our foreign policy establishment has the will.

                          Chinese policy on religion is multifaceted and has many means at its disposal besides overt repression. Since the Cultural Revolution, China’s leaders have often supported religious groups perceived as helpful in consolidating Beijing’s power. Xi himself has praised Chinese (non-Tibetan) Buddhism, Confucianism, and Daoism as the “traditional cultures” of China, and has exhorted adherents of those religions to help reverse China’s moral decline.

                          Those three groups pose a lesser threat to Communist rule than do the Uighur Muslims, Tibetan Buddhists, and Christians—the three religious communities that are targets of ongoing repression. The Muslims of Xinjiang province are being subjected to an anti-Uighur campaign that is staggering in its scope and totalitarian sophistication. It is a twenty-first-century version of the Cultural Revolution—its goal being to destroy a minority religion associated with a particular ethnic group by means of Stalinist-style informers, periodic crackdowns to intimidate the populace, and “reeducation.” In recent years, hundreds of reeducation camps have been established, run by Chinese officials trained in the “transformation” of inmates from adherents of Islam to devotees of Chinese communism. Hundreds of thousands of Uighur Muslims are incarcerated in these camps.

                          Efforts to dissemble China’s cruelty have been preposterous. At a U.N. conference in March, a Chinese official told an assembly of NGO leaders that the reeducation camps were merely for “vocational training”—a lie countered by Ambassador ­Brownback and me. Brownback said he would provide lists of Chinese citizens who were desperate to know the fates of their relatives who had disappeared into the camps. I told the official that China’s policy was creating terrorists, not preventing them from emerging.

                          The lesson of China’s anti-Uighur campaign is this: When it discerns a threat to its absolute control over its citizens, as it does with Uighur and Tibetan separatism, Beijing remains capable of the systematic, brutal repression of religious and ethnic minorities that characterized the twentieth-century totalitarians (and still operates in North Korea). We should not deceive ourselves concerning Beijing’s capacity for reverting to Mao’s scorched-earth policies on religion.

                          At present, however, Xi’s Uighur policy is merely the most visible and inhumane aspect of China’s long-term strategy to control and manipulate religion. That strategy has many elements, but three stand out.

                          The bureaucracy that has carried out China’s religion policy since the 1950s is the State Administration for Religious Affairs (SARA), successor to the Religious Affairs Bureau. This huge state agency, staffed in its early years by former members of the Red Army, has long been charged with controlling religion at the local and provincial level. While serving as the first director of the State Department’s Office of International Religious Freedom, I met in China with former SARA director Ye Xiaowen and was present during some of his trips to the United States. His job was to assure Americans that religious freedom was not imperiled in China.

                          Xi has decided to absorb SARA into the Communist party by incorporating it into the United Front Work Department, a bureaucracy historically charged with controlling China’s ethnic minorities. This move is part of an overall tightening of government authority over civil society, especially its growing religious elements. In its latest Report on International Religious Freedom (for 2017), the State Department estimates that there are 70 million Christians in China, about 12 million of them Catholics. The expansion of Chinese Christianity, especially through conversions to Protestant denominations, is of great concern to Beijing. Purdue sociologist and China specialist Fenggang Yang predicts that within a generation, China will be the largest Christian nation in the world. Other religions are gaining adherents as well. Moving SARA closer to the Politburo ensures increased monitoring and control over the threat posed by Christianity’s growth in China.

                          Fear of Religious Education

                          Like other elements of Xi’s policy, religious education has long been under the Chinese bureaucracy’s microscope. One of SARA’s responsibilities has been to minimize the danger, intensely felt by the Communist party, that religious education might lead to resistance among China’s religious citizens. American religious freedom diplomacy has attempted to address the resulting violations of parental rights. In 2002, Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom John Hanford reported to Congress an assurance by SARA Director Ye Xiaowen that parents were, in fact, free to teach religion to their children. There was a half-truth in Xiaowen’s assurance: Parents could teach their children surreptitiously, but the consequences of being caught conveying, for example, Catholic teaching on issues such as religious freedom for all, the equal dignity of all persons created in the image and likeness of God, or the evil of abortion, were severe.

                          The perceived threat posed by such teachings is one reason for Xi’s crackdown on religious education and his policy of “Sinicization.” Under the latter policy, no child under eighteen may attend religious services or any other religious event. No child under eighteen may receive religious education of any kind from anyone. Furthermore, each Chinese religious community is responsible for ensuring that its teachings are compatible with “the socialist society” and supportive of the leadership of the Communist party.

                          For Chinese Catholics, the government-controlled body charged with carrying out Sinicization is the so-called Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association. Following Xi’s instructions, it has drafted a detailed implementation document, which contains the following passage:
                          The [Catholic] Church will regard promotion and education on core values of socialism as a basic requirement for adhering to the Sinicization of Catholicism. It will guide clerics and Catholics to foster and maintain correct views on history and the nation and strengthen community awareness.
                          Of course, the “core values of socialism” as practiced in China are exceedingly difficult to square with the core values of Catholicism. Gerard O’Connell has noted correctly that Xi’s religious education policy
                          strikes at the very heart and future of the Catholic and other Christian churches, as well as that of other religions. It is an issue of utmost concern for Catholics in China who see it as an attempt by the communist authorities . . . to prevent young people from being educated or growing up in the faith.
                          Systematic Government Oppression

                          Xi’s policy of intensified persecution has affected religious groups other than the Uighur Muslims. ­Houses of worship are being destroyed: With increasing frequency, churches are bulldozed, as are mosques and Tibetan Buddhist schools and temples. Chinese officials are stepping up their monitoring of the Internet, especially of religious content. Contributions to religious groups are closely monitored and controlled, public proselytism has been outlawed, and priests, pastors, monks, nuns, and lay religious people are being imprisoned unjustly. Perhaps most insidious is the Chinese government’s huge investment in facial recognition technology and coercive DNA collection, which will be used to track anyone, religious or not, who is seen as a challenge to Communist control. The fear of religion in particular—a fear native to all totalitarian systems—is producing under Xi a broad and carefully planned national anti-religion strategy with many moving parts.

                          At the level of geopolitics and grand strategy, Xi’s crackdown on religion and other liberties has undermined, perhaps fatally, the hope that China will join the “liberal international order” under American leadership. The traditional argument that trade and investment, accompanied by people-to-people exchanges, would make China more liberal was always difficult to make. Now, it seems utterly naive.

                          American religious freedom policy has played only a small part in the grand strategy of liberalizing ­China. Chinese Communist religion policy has always constituted an assault on fundamental human rights. It has caused vast human suffering. It has consistently violated the rights of conscience; the right to be free of torture, unjust imprisonment, and other assaults on human dignity; and the right of religious freedom as laid out in international law, including Article 18 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (which China has signed but not ratified).

                          Many congressmen have spoken out consistently about China’s violations of religious freedom, as have some senior American diplomats. The China section of the 2018 Annual Report by the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom is pointed in its criticisms, as is the China chapter of the State Department’s latest Report on International Religious Freedom. After his appearance at the U.N., Ambassador Brownback traveled to Hong Kong and delivered a warning to China. Beijing is “at war with faith,” he said, “a war they will not win.”

                          The unprecedented Ministerial to Advance International Religious Freedom, convened in July 2018 by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and run by Ambassador Brownback, produced a very strong statement on China. America’s leading diplomats will have an opportunity to issue another critical declaration on religious freedom in China at a second Ministerial to be held in July 2019.

                          Such statements and reports will always be important. They give hope to the victims of persecution and keep a spotlight on what the Chinese government is doing to its religious minorities. But it is difficult to argue that American policies over the past two decades have had a positive impact on China’s religion policy, or on the fate of its religious minorities. American religious freedom policies have failed in part, no doubt, for the same reason virtually all efforts to liberalize China have failed: China’s single-minded determination to recover its status as a world power has left little room for the freedom of its citizens or the development of civil society.

                          The United States must never abandon the call for China to accept its legal and moral obligations to human freedom and dignity. American reports, denunciations, and dialogues have, on occasion, had the laudable result of freeing a religious prisoner or removing a family from harm’s way. These efforts must continue. Most modern American presidents and secretaries of state have raised the issue of persecution with their Chinese counterparts. These efforts, too, must continue. Indeed, they must be undertaken with greater frequency. But we must not forget that raising the issue, even at the highest levels, is not the same as addressing the problem in substantive ways.

                          Unfortunately, the failure of the United States to address religious persecution in China is not limited to foreign policy. The Justice Department has taken positions that threaten to undermine the strong protections Congress has provided for those suffering religious persecution abroad. In a recent case, Ting Xue v. Sessions, the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit held, at the Department’s urging, that a Chinese Christian lacked a “well-founded fear of persecution” within the meaning of the asylum laws—even though his decision to attend an unregistered house church had led to his being arrested, beaten, jailed for three days, forced to pay a major fine, required to take reeducation classes, and warned not to attend illegal church meetings.

                          The immigration judge denied Ting Xue’s asylum petition, saying his fears of future persecution “[did] not amount to more than a restriction on [his] liberty and thus [did] not rise to the level of persecution” (emphasis added). The Board of Immigration Appeals held, as did the Tenth Circuit, that the “level of harassment” Xue experienced did not qualify as “persecution” under asylum laws. Xue petitioned for certiorari in the United States Supreme Court, and fortunately the Justice Department, perhaps recognizing the absurdity of this result, settled his case. Ting Xue and his family are now living peacefully and productively in the United States.

                          In the Tenth Circuit, however, it remains the law that asylum applicants do not have a well-founded fear of religious persecution if they are “free” to practice their faith in secret. This view reduces freedom of religion to the private, interior freedom of belief and worship, as distinct from the freedom of religious exercise guaranteed in the Constitution’s First Amendment. It also conflicts with the view of at least three other federal circuits. As the Seventh Circuit powerfully put it in Muhur v. Ashcroft (2004):
                          Christians living in the Roman Empire before Constantine made Christianity the empire’s official religion faced little risk of being thrown to the lions if they practiced their religion in secret; it doesn’t follow that Rome did not persecute Christians, or that a Christian who failed to conceal his faith would be acting “unreasonably.”
                          A group of interested lawyers and scholars has encouraged the attorney general to use his statutory authority under the immigration law to address this problem, and to make clear that one may suffer persecution even if one is “free” to practice one’s faith alone and in private. This view is far more consistent with the protection that our nation has historically accorded our “first freedom.”

                          I would submit that the impoverished view of religious freedom as mere “freedom to believe and worship” has taken hold among some in our foreign policy establishment, and that it has played a role in the highly rhetorical and largely ineffective international religious freedom diplomacy adopted by the State Department over the past two decades. It is difficult to mount an effective strategy to advance religious freedom in China, or anywhere else, if you believe that religious freedom entails primarily a private right of belief and worship, with no legitimate role for religion in public affairs.

                          What, then, can be done, not just said? A more effective religious freedom strategy would not abandon the quest for freedom in China. Nor would it jettison the need for reports or the possibility of sanctions. But it would base American policy on a different logic—one designed to counter the natural communist suspicion of all religion, while at the same time presenting evidence-based self-interest arguments that might appeal to the practical strain in Chinese Communism.

                          A self-interest argument would contain the following proposition: The growth of religion and of religious communities is natural and inevitable in every society. This is why Mao’s policy failed and why religious affiliation is now expanding in China. Efforts to stamp out religion or restrain its growth are self-defeating. Religious persecution retards economic development, increases social instability, and feeds violent religious extremism. Conversely, the accommodation of religious groups would benefit China’s economy and conduce to its social harmony and stability.

                          Elements of this argument have been used on occasion by some American officials. But the full argument should now be employed consistently by all American officials, promoted by U.S.-funded programs, supported by empirical research, and institutionalized in a permanent U.S.-China bilateral working group on religion, which would study the positive economic and social effects of religious communities.

                          I believe the diplomatic stars are aligned for a new strategy based on self-interest arguments of this sort. Ambassador Brownback has spoken publicly about the empirical evidence that religious freedom encourages economic development and undermines violent religious extremism. His predecessor, Ambassador David Saperstein, laid the groundwork for this approach.

                          A new strategy of pragmatic argument would stand a chance of actually reducing religious persecution in China. Economic growth is a major priority for Chinese policymaking, both domestic and international. If Chinese authorities come to view the country’s religious communities as an economic asset and a driver of modernization, rather than as a source of social and political instability, they will become more receptive to arguments against persecution. For instance, if they come to regard unregulated Protestant house churches as factories for the social habits that yield economic productivity, they may reassess the role of the Three-Self Patriotic Movement (the state-sanctioned Protestant church) in controlling and repressing Protestant groups. The connection between religion and economic growth can work to the advantage of non-Protestant and non-Christian religious groups as well.

                          The increasing need in China for social services and moral renewal provides another opportunity for making the case that religion is good for China. The problems are enormous: the spread of infectious diseases, from leprosy to AIDS; a burgeoning population of elderly people who lack resources; tens of millions of people who continue in abject poverty; environmental degradation; massive migration into cities; homelessness; family breakdown; moral degeneracy; and more. China’s “one-child” policy, brutally implemented for decades, has produced a demographic catastrophe, which includes, but is not limited to, a shortage of women. (Female babies were aborted far more often than males.) Religious communities are uniquely positioned to deal with such problems and to deliver the services that government cannot.

                          With Congress’s urging and help, the administration should develop an all-government strategy to persuade Beijing of an empirically verifiable proposition: China’s minority religions will make substantial contributions to Chinese interests if the government will grant them their freedom. A religious China will enjoy more sustained economic growth. Religion can address China’s moral decline and its pervasive corruption. It can provide support for China’s poor, its orphans, its victims of natural disaster, the aged, and the dying. Religion, in short, will contribute to social harmony.

                          There are other avenues of influence that need to be utilized. China’s self-­understanding is grounded in the rule of law—not in the democratic sense, in which law restricts the power of government and protects individual rights, but in the sense of defining and protecting the interests of the nation from the top down. Implicit in the Chinese view of law is an understanding of the state as collectivist and paternalistic. As economic development continues to create a middle class and a civil society of voluntary associations, it is possible that this view of law may shift. But for the foreseeable future, particularly given Xi’s new policies, religion will be managed in China through laws that are intended to regulate, control, and, if necessary, suppress.

                          Working within that framework, American diplomacy should coordinate what are at present ad hoc and inconsistent efforts on the part of various organizations inside China to encourage legal reform. The U.S. should encourage these disparate programs—some of which are U.S.-funded, many of which are not—to employ the law for the benefit of religious groups. For example, legal programs should target local and provincial officials who violate laws and regulations in the course of crackdowns on religious groups. To this end, American grants should encourage NGOs to train and support Chinese defense attorneys who are experts in existing legal codes, and who can defend in Chinese courts religious groups suffering discrimination or abuse.

                          Certain positive developments should be encouraged. The Chinese have traditionally venerated learning. When controlled religious activities became permissible after the Cultural Revolution, one result was a powerful drive to understand better that which must be controlled. Accordingly, Chinese institutions of higher learning developed a natural interest in the “scientific” study of religion. Ironically, the universities of officially atheist China take a greater interest in religion than do the universities of most other countries. Chinese scholars travel the world to gather materials for detailed analyses of various religious traditions.

                          The United States should allocate resources to stimulate greater academic interchange with Chinese academics on the topic of religion. This interchange can take many forms: university exchange programs of faculty and students; cooperative empirical research on the relationship between religious freedom and political, social, economic, and intellectual development; curricula development initiatives; and discussion of the value of religious education for the common good. Many of these initiatives, in fact, already exist. But as is often the case with American policies on international religious freedom, they are not pursued with sufficient consistency.

                          American religious freedom policy must move beyond its ad hoc past. The U.S. and China should establish a permanent bilateral institution—one that can withstand the ups and downs of U.S.-China relations—committed to the discussion and study of religion and its social effects. In the summer of 2002, Ambassador Hanford proposed forming a standing bilateral working group on religion, chaired by ­high-level American and Chinese officials. The proposal was met with interest by the Chinese but nixed in the State Department, strangled by a diplomatic bureaucracy that takes a dim view of the value of religious freedom to American interests. That view needs to change.

                          The standing working group should be multilayered and interagency, and it should draw on the government and private sectors. It should showcase scholarship that has emerged in recent years demonstrating the negative effects of religious persecution on social harmony and economic development. In doing so, it would systematically introduce into Chinese thinking the empirical fact, ever more fully attested, that religious freedom yields more economic growth, more social harmony, better governance, less corruption, and less religious extremism. The working group could make recommendations to both governments, and should sponsor private and public programs to address religion as a matter of law and science.

                          China has emerged as a major player on the world stage, the only country capable of rivaling the United States in power and influence. Its fate will be of enormous significance for international affairs, in cultural as well as economic matters. Signal among the cultural matters will be religious freedom—or the lack of it. How China handles its internal religious matters is of greater importance than our foreign policy establishment at present recognizes. The United States should make religious liberty central to its relationship with this rising power.

                                    Hot Toys revela imagens da armadura Mark VI do Máquina de Combate usada em Vingadores: Ultimato      Comment   Translate Page      
                          Mais uma novidade revelada pela Hot Toys essa semana e que já está em exposição em Hong Kong essa semana é uma das armaduras que veremos do Máquina de Combate no filme Vingadores: Ultimato. Sim, falei uma delas. Afinal, entre a quarta que apareceu em Guerra Infinita e essa sexta aí, tem que ter mais outra, não?



                          A armadura assim como a do Homem de Ferro vem com LEDs internos para o capacete e as mãos. Algumas partes da armadura são destacáveis e há seis pares de mãos intercambiáveis. A peça vem ainda com um canhão de ombro e o capacete pode ser aberto expondo o rosto de Don Cheadle dentro dele.

Before air travel overtook trains, nearly every coast-to-coast journey included a stop there, and this flow of people and commodities made it America's central clearinghouse, laboratory, and factory. Between the end of World War II and 1960, Mies van der Rohe's glass-and-steel architecture became the face of corporate America, Ray Kroc's McDonald's changed how people eat, Hugh Hefner unveiled Playboy, and the Chess brothers supercharged rock and roll with Chuck Berry. At the University of Chicago, the atom was split and Western civilization was packaged into the Great Books. Yet even as Chicago led the way in creating mass-market culture, its artists pushed back in their own distinct voices. In literature, it was the outlaw novels of Nelson Algren (then carrying on a passionate affair with Simone de Beauvoir), the poems of Gwendolyn Brooks, and Studs Terkel's oral histories. In music, it was the gospel of Mahalia Jackson, the urban blues of Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, and the trippy avant-garde jazz of Sun Ra. In performance, it was the intimacy of Kukla, Fran, and Ollie, the "Chicago School" of television, and the improvisational comedy troupe Second City whose famous alumni are now everywhere in American entertainment. Despite this diversity, racial divisions informed virtually every aspect of life in Chicago. The chaos - both constructive and destructive - of this period was set into motion by the second migration north of African Americans during World War II. As whites either fled to the suburbs or violently opposed integration, urban planners tried to design away "blight" with projects that marred a generation of American cities. The election of Mayor Richard J. Daley in 1955 launched a frenzy of new building that came at a terrible cost - monolithic housing projects for the black community and a new kind of self-satisfied provincialism that sped up the end of Chicago's role as America's meeting place. In luminous prose, Chicago native Thomas Dyj...

                                    In memoriam: Claude Lalanne (1924-2019)      Comment   Translate Page      

                          The French sculptor Claude Lalanne has died aged 93. The artist – who passed away on Wednesday 11 April in Fontaineblue – touched audiences all over the world with her animals, flora and fauna sculpted in copper and gilt bronze, designs often inspired by the vegetation in her own garden.

                          Fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent was one of the many who were moved by ‘her ability to unite craftsmanship and poetry with equal depth’. Saint Laurent, who commissioned Lalanne in 1969 to collaborate on this autumn/winter collection, and later in the 1980s, (the only artist he ever collaborated with) was not the only major designer who admired her work: Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld and Bernard Arnault were among her fans. Her unique combination of decorative design and fine art styles resonated with the fashion world. Laughter, play and fantasy were always at the centre of her work, that was, in her own words, the result of dreaming while awake.

                          The art world delighted in her classical and baroque touches, references to antiquity, sharp wit and age-old themes – but Lalanne was in no means stuck in the past. She was a pioneer of electroplating methods, using plates of metal pressed onto each other by hydrolysis as well as a master of traditional casting.

                          Lalanne was born in Paris in 1924, and was among few women of her generation to study architecture at the École des Beaux-Arts. She later trained at the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. In the 1950s, she emerged as part of the last wave of the avant-garde in the French capital, and associated with the likes of Magritte, Man Ray, Duchamp and Ernst, and Constant Brâncuși, her neighbour in Montparnasse where she and her late husband, the artist François-Xavier Lalanne, lived and worked. The couple were affectionately known in Paris’ bohemian circles as Les Lalanne, also the artist name of their duo: working side by side, rather than collaboratively, they often exhibited together.

                          Some of Lalanne’s monumental achievements in a career that spanned six decades included her sculpture L’homme à tête de chou (The man with the head of a cabbage), which featured on the cover and as the title of a 1976 album of Serge Gainsbourg. She also created a set of cutlery for Salvador Dalí which he later took credit for – the artist also took her Onion Watch and never gave it back (his wife Gala eventually returned the watch to Lalanne).

                          Her partner François-Xavier passed away in 2008, a year after the pair had their first joint exhibition together at Ben Brown Fine Arts in London. Following his death Lalanne continued to work in the home they had shared for over five decades. She is survived by her daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Lalanne went on to present seven solo exhibitions at the galleries in London and Hong Kong of the British dealer. In the US, she has been represented by Paul Kasmin since 2004.

                          In a statement, Ben Brown remembered Lalanne as ‘an endlessly original sculptor’, describing a ‘great friend’, and recalling lunches together at the Lalanne’s country home in Ury on visits to France. Lalanne, he said, ‘lusciously uninhibited world which was very much her own, and to which she welcomed us’. That world included her famous cabbage with chicken feet, crocodiles you could sit on, and whimsical giant apples. She was a ‘visionary whose imagination seemingly knew no bounds’, he added.

                          One of Lalanne’s most recently completed works was a staircase commissioned by Peter Marino. In summer 2020, the work of Les Lalanne, their world and legacy will be explored at the Clark Institute, Massachusetts. Her life’s work include publicly held pieces in the collections of the Cooper Hewitt Museum, New York; Musée Nationale d’Art Moderne, Paris; the Musée d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris; and the Centre Pompidou, Paris. §


                                    Update on measles cases      Comment   Translate Page      
                               The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) said today (April 14) that no additional case of measles infection has been recorded as at 4pm today.

                               Separately, the CHP was notified by the health authority of Japan of one measles case confirmed in Japan. According to the information provided by the health authority of Japan, the patient took a cruise from April 7 to 9 travelling from Shenzhen to Naha, Okinawa with passengers from Hong Kong. The patient developed fever on April 8 and was diagnosed with measles on April 12. The CHP's contact tracing is ongoing and will continue to maintain close communication with the Japanese health authority for further information.

                               "The incubation period (the period from infection to appearance of illness) of measles ranges from seven days to 21 days. Symptoms of measles include fever, skin rash, cough, runny nose and red eyes. If symptoms arise, members of the public should wear surgical masks, stop going to work or school and avoid going to crowded places. They should also avoid contact with non-immune persons, especially persons with weakened immunity, pregnant women and children aged below one. Those suspected to have been infected are advised to seek medical attention as early as possible and reveal relevant contact history of measles to healthcare professionals," the spokesman advised. 

                               Regarding measles control measures implemented at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), a total of 5 persons received measles vaccination at the airport vaccination station as at 6pm today, bringing the cumulative number of vaccinations given to 8 140.

                               From tomorrow (April 15) to April 28, the vaccination quota for the measles vaccination station at the airport remains at 500 doses daily. Vaccination to eligible airport staff will be provided to the following target groups who: 

                               (1) Were born in or after 1967, and have not received two doses of measles vaccination, and have not been infected with measles before, and with evidence of living with infants under one year old or living with pregnant women; or 

                               (2) Have laboratory evidence of testing not positive against measles antibody (IgG)

                               Details of evidence are as follows:

                               (a) Supporting documents for living with infants under one-year-old: for example, birth certificate, discharge summary or vaccination card of the infant

                               (b) Supporting documents for living with pregnant women: for example, positive pregnancy tests or antenatal follow-up cards of the pregnant women

                               (c) Supporting documents for laboratory evidence: for example, blood results from the DH's measles serology test or any laboratory within the past 12 months

                               The venue and operation hours of the airport vaccination station are as follows:

                          2pm to 6pm

                               As for the blood test service, the DH will continue to arrange the provision of a measles serology test service for airport staff to identify those who need the measles vaccination. A DH contractor will provide the blood test service to about 200 airport staff who were born in or after 1967 daily from Tuesdays to Thursdays (April 16 to 18, 23 to 25). The blood test service will be suspended from Fridays to Mondays.

                               Hong Kong prides itself on connectivity, and we promote our city as Asia's World City, a perfect location in Asia for people to connect and excel. The focus of such connectivity ranges from finance to trade, from technology to culture, etc. This is why throughout the year, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government hosts or supports international and regional gatherings like the Asian Financial Forum, the Belt and Road Summit, the Internet Economy Summit (which by the way will take place tomorrow at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre) and the Asia Cultural Co-operation Forum. I am therefore delighted that the AUA has chosen Hong Kong as the place to hold its third annual summit. Obviously the AUA also believes in the power of connectivity, which explains why since the Tsinghua University first proposed to establish the AUA in April 2016, it had only taken a year for all the preparatory work to be completed and for the AUA to be formally launched in 2017. Through the AUA, the 15 founding universities seek to jointly address regional and global challenges, specifically related to higher education and economic, scientific and technological development, by strengthening collaboration. In Professor Qiu's words, the founding of AUA marks a significant milestone in Asian higher education. It is a product of the common needs and shared expectation of the 15 founding universities.   
                           
                               This growing connectivity within Asia is, in my view, both necessary and meaningful. The region already plays a pivotal role in the global economy and is destined to continue to provide the impetus for growth. In my former capacity as the Chief Secretary for Administration, I was invited to contribute a piece to a publication by the UK's Asia House released in 2016 entitled Asia 2025. In the book's Foreword, the Chairman of Asia House remarked that "it is not the abundance of opportunity that will fully confirm Asia's significance", but we will be seeing "a new phase of global development and underlining the value of educational links and shared scientific research". With its foresight, AUA and its founding universities are clearly embracing that shared value.  
                           
                               At the government level, especially with the strong tradition of an open economy, Hong Kong embraces the importance of enhanced connectivity with other Asian economies. To name just a few of our specific initiatives, we have entered into a Hong Kong – ASEAN Free Trade Agreement and related Investment Agreement in late 2017, which subject to the necessary ratification should come into effect this year. We have opened a new Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Bangkok in February 2019, our third office in ASEAN after Singapore and Jakarta. We have plans for opening similar offices in Dubai, Mumbai and Seoul. Since taking office in July 2017, I and my colleague, the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development have visited Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia and the Philippines. We have introduced Belt and Road scholarships for students from Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Myanmar to study in our local universities. I should add that for over 20 years, the Hong Kong-based Asian Youth Orchestra has helped nurture music and friendship amongst young musicians in the region. The education links represented by the AUA are therefore a much-valued partner in this enhanced network that we are building.
                           
                               Let me now turn to the Presidents Forum today. Your forum agenda, with sustainable development and technological entrepreneurship as central themes, is as ambitious and welcome as the AUA itself. The central question at hand is this: what can our post-secondary institutions bring to these complex challenges, these compelling opportunities? The answers will go a long way towards realising a flourishing and inclusive future for our universities, our economies and the Asian region as a whole.
                           
                               Innovation and technology is a policy priority for my Government and an area of progressive growth and boundless promise for our universities. Hong Kong has what it takes to be successful in this field. To start with, we have world-class research capabilities. Four Hong Kong universities rank among the world's top 100. That includes the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, a founding member of the AUA. Let me add that this prestigious university is among the top young universities in the world, leading the way in science and engineering-related subjects. 
                           
                               Hong Kong's technology research strengths include biotechnology, artificial intelligence and robotics. To expand on these and other areas of excellence, we have in recent years put in place numerous policies and programmes to promote R&D at our universities. Our Innovation and Technology Fund, for example, supports both applied and forward-looking R&D projects undertaken by our universities. We also have the Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities under the Fund, which enables university professors and students to start technology companies and commercialise their R&D results.
                           
                               In January this year, we launched the Partnership Research Programme under the Fund. It sponsors R&D projects undertaken by private companies in collaboration with local universities.  There is also a dedicated programme which funds universities engaged in midstream research.
                           
                               On top of the above, our Innovation and Technology Fund assists universities in their technology transfer. And, I'm pleased to note, R&D results among our universities are encouraging. A start-up linked with Hong Kong Polytechnic University, for example, developed soft contact lenses and spectacle lenses that can retard the progression of myopia in children.  Its related defocus-incorporated-multiple-segments technology won the Grand Prize at last year's International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva. The research behind this breakthrough was funded by our Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities that I mentioned just now. By the way, I am thrilled to learn from yesterday's news and this morning's newspapers that this year's Geneva Exhibition of Inventions' Grand Prize also goes to a Hong Kong company, a start-up at Science Park, with a water-based manufacturing process to recycle and reuse lithium battery as its winning entry.
                           
                               Excellent work is also being done by the 16 State Key Labs and six local branches of Chinese National Engineering Research Centres here, which are funded in full or in part by the Innovation and Technology Fund. Hosted by Hong Kong universities, their achievements include the new stress-tolerant soybean cultivar, and the world's first scientific model for predicting metal toxicity in marine environments and bodies of water. Let me add that Professor Dennis Lo, Director of the State Key Lab of Translational Oncology, was named among the "Top 20 Translational Researchers" for two consecutive years by the world-renowned journal Nature Biotechnology. Professor Lo developed a noninvasive prenatal diagnostic technology that has benefited millions of pregnant women around the world. And SenseTime, a home-grown technology company in the Hong Kong Science Park founded by Professor Tang Xiaoou has developed into the world's most valuable AI start-up in just a little over three years.
                           
                               It's all very encouraging, which is why we continue to expand our support – through facilitating policies and considerable investment at some US$12.5 billion in the past two years.  This fiscal year, my Government doubled annual funding under our Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities. Each university now gets more than US$1 million a year. We've done the same for the technology transfer office of each university, which means a doubling of funding to more than US$1 million a year. As for our State Key Labs and the Hong Kong Branches of Chinese National Engineering Research Centres, their annual funding has also been doubled to US$1.3 million.
                           
                               And to boost our impressive talent base, my Government launched the Postdoctoral Hub last August under the Innovation and Technology Fund. It funds universities and other organisations in their recruitment of post-doctoral talent for R&D work. The Researcher Programme also supports them in the hiring of local graduates to assist in R&D projects. Since February, the maximum time period for these two programmes has been extended to three years. Response is overwhelming with the Researcher Programme having sponsored over 3 800 local graduates to join the innovation and technology industry and the Postdoctoral Hub Programme having sponsored 360 postdoctoral talents to pursue a career in R&D. 
                           
                               We are, in short, committed to helping our universities realise their full R&D potential. Our more ambitious goal, however, is to help build an international innovation and technology hub here in Hong Kong. That includes the establishment of two world-class research clusters at our Science Park – one targeting healthcare technologies, the other artificial intelligence and robotics. In each case, we are inviting renowned universities, research institutions and companies from all over the world to look to Hong Kong for their future.
                           
                               The response has been encouraging, and from such prestigious universities as Harvard, Stanford and Johns Hopkins in the United States, Imperial College and University College London in the United Kingdom, the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany and the Institut Pasteur in France. From the Mainland of China, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Tsinghua University are amongst the active project proponents. In all, we've received nearly 50 proposals to date, and the first research institutions will be setting up their laboratories in two brand new buildings at the Science Park before the end of this year.
                           
                               We are also building unprecedented connections and opportunity through the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. The city cluster comprises the two Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao and nine major cities in Guangdong, and each of the 11 cities will contribute their respective strengths. The Outline Development Plan for the Greater Bay Area was promulgated by the Central Government in February this year, and the goal of creating an international innovation and technology hub for the Greater Bay Area occupies a very prominent part of the Plan.
                           
                               To that end, we are strengthening our collaboration with the Mainland on the innovation and technology front under the "One Country, Two Systems" principle. With the support of the Central Government, our local universities and research institutions are now eligible to apply for state funding on science and technology and the approved funds will be remitted to Hong Kong.  Also in last year, we signed a co-operation arrangement with the Mainland's Ministry of Science and Technology, which serves as an action guide and framework for us to enhance co-operation in scientific research, nurturing of talents, transfer of results, etc. We also entered into a memorandum of understanding with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which will set up an affiliated institution here in Hong Kong to facilitate its research institutes to participate in the research clusters I mentioned earlier. And we've established a Bay Area academician alliance to promote co-operation among academicians from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering. They will help advise on the Greater Bay Area's technological development.
                           
                               We would like to see more world-renowned universities and research institutions joining us, both for the research clusters being set up in Hong Kong and for the Greater Bay Area development. That is why university visits are now almost a "must-see" on my official itinerary overseas. Last week, during my trip to Japan, I visited the University of Tokyo, a member of the AUA, and had a very fruitful meeting with President Gonokami.
                           
                               While we are all excited about science and technological innovation, we must not forget about sustainable development, or the broader humanity issues, without which there will be little social and ecological harmony. I am glad to note that sustainable development is also a main theme to be discussed at this Presidents Forum.
                           
                               Hong Kong definitely realises the importance of sustainable development. And the Government has rolled out various environmental blueprints and measures to tackle environmental degradation. I should add that there is also a dedicated chapter in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Outline Development Plan entitled "Taking Forward Ecological Conservation". But time will not allow me to go into details this morning.
                           
                               Finally, I wish the AUA, and each of its member universities, continuing success, and all of you a rewarding Presidents Forum and Summit here in Hong Kong. Thank you very much.

                                    ABB anuncia fábrica na China que irá produzir até 25% de todos os robôs do mundo      Comment   Translate Page      

                          A partir de 2020, entre 20% e 25% de todos os robôs não-humanoides do mundo serão fabricados por uma única empresa. Isso vai acontecer graças a uma nova super fábrica que será inaugurada na China no ano que vem.

                          A ABB (grupo resultado da fusão entre a empresa sueca Asea e a suíça Brown, Boveri & Cie, e que atua em mais de 100 países produzindo conversores de energia, transformadores, semicondutores e instrumentos de robótica) anunciou que irá inaugurar uma nova fábrica em Kang Qiao (município que fica na região periférica de Xangai) que terá capacidade de produzir até 100 mil robôs não-humanóides por ano.

                          Esses robôs serão dos tipos usados para a automação de serviços em indústrias, tendo o formato de braços mecânicos e outras formas não-humanóides. Para efeito de comparação, o mercado de automação industrial possui uma demanda anual entre 400 mil e 500 mil desses robôs (dependendo do quão agitada está a economia mundial), o que significa que a nova fábrica da ABB terá a capacidade de, sozinha, suprir entre um quarto e um quinto de toda a demanda mundial pelo produto.

                          Para a construção da fábrica, serão investidos cerca de US$ 150 milhões pela ABB. Essa não é a primeira vez que a empresa investe na China: entre seus escritórios em Pequim e em Hong-Kong, a empresa já investiu cerca de US$ 2,4 bilhões no país, que é o segundo maior mercado consumidor do mundo de produtos da companhia.

                          O anúncio de uma fábrica da ABB na China mostra uma tendência do mercado de robótica de mudança para o país asiático. Recentemente a Hanson, companhia americana que ficou famosa por criar a robô humanóide Sofia, também mudou sua sede para a China, na região de Hong Kong. Essas mudanças têm sido motivadas não apenas pela menor quantidade de impostos nessas regiões, mas também pela proximidade com fornecedores, já que praticamente todos os fabricantes de chips e outros componentes eletrônicos estão concentrados na região do sul da China, o que diminui os custos de transporte e ajuda a diminuir também os custos de produção dessas empresas.

                          Hi Kei, Great question! I know you can exchange train tickets because I changed dates once, but I don't know about cancellations. If you do it a few weeks in advance it may work, but I'm not sure. You may have to ask hour hotel, or just book a flight on Expedia and cancel it within 24 hours for a refund.

                          High up in the hills above Hong Kong, Yip Ki-hok uses nothing but his bare hands to remove a honey-filled nest of swarming bees -- a remarkable skill he learned after the hardship of China's famine years.

                          Berdasarkan laporan situs error Down Detector per sore ini, Facebook, WhatsApp, dan Instagram tidak bisa diakses dilaporkan oleh banyak pengguna sejak pukul 17.00 WIB.

                          Jumlah laporannya pun kian meningkat selama satu jam terakhir. Adapun laporan berasal dari berbagai negara di dunia, antara lain adalah Indonesia, sebagian Asia, Eropa, Malaysia, Kamboja, dan lain-lain.

                          Tidak bisa diaksesnya ketiga layanan media sosial ini, dikeluhkan pengguna yang lari ke Twitter.

                          Lucunya, ada pula yang memanfaatkan momen tersebut dengan menggunggah lelucon meme-meme sarkas yang menyindir media sosial milik Mark Zuckerberg tersebut.

                          Beberapa meme bahkan menyinggung soal pengguna yang beralih ke aplikasi pesan instan saingan WhatsApp, yakni Telegram, karena diklaim tidak pernah eror.

                          Meme-meme ini pun bersamaan muncul dengan tagar #FacebookDown, #WhatsAppDown, dan #InstagramDown yang bertengger di ketiga peringkat trending topic global. 

                          Untuk lebih lengkapnya, kamu bisa simak kumpulan meme-meme tersebut berikut ini.

                          Sementara itu, hal serupa terjadi pada Instagram. Masih menurut Down Detector, laporan tumbangnya Instagram meningkat tajam selama satu jam terakhir.

                          Laman Down Detector menyebut sudah ada total 735 laporan dalam satu jam terakhir. Pengguna yang terdampak adalah mereka yang ada di Indonesia, Eropa, Hong Kong, India, sebagian Amerika Serikat, Rusia, dan Jepang.

                          Chao Shan Teochew Restaurant in Indahpura Kulai Johor 潮汕海鲜餐厅

                          Our Kulai friend Puan Chong and family found Chao Shan Restaurant in Indahpura (Kulai) near their home and they love it. So, we arranged to have dinner there together last night.

                          Chao Shan Teochew Restaurant in Indahpura Kulai Johor 潮汕海鲜餐厅

                          Chao Shan is a year old small restaurant and it has quickly become popular with local families for their Teochew dishes at reasonable prices.

                          Owner chef Tang has over 20 years' experience in F & B including as Executive Chef of Souper Tang restaurants. Head Chef 自强 too has 2 decades of experience including years in Melbourne under the tutelage of Hong Kong master chefs. Chef Tang is starting a second Chao Shan outlet in Bukit Indah soon.



                          Eleven adults and 3 children in our party, we had 10 dishes. We enjoyed all the well executed dishes as the ingredients were fresh and the well balanced flavours were at the intensity we like (neither too light nor too strong). We had the larger serving size for most of the dishes.

                          First up was the aspic (meat jello) 潮州水晶猪脚冻 (price RM18.90+). I like the mild savoury flavour of the jello which was made by boiling pig skin into liquid and then chilling it into a jiggly gel. The jello was "melt in the (warmth of your) mouth" as no gelling agent was used. The tender pieces of pork trotter meat embedded inside were tender, their mild savoury sweetness adding additional layers of flavour to the delicious traditional Teochew dish.

                          潮州芋头龙虎斑炉 Tiger dragon grouper steamboat. I like the gently herbal, savoury sweet taste of the vegetable and mushroom soup. We had a fresh tiger dragon grouper with the soup. There are other fish options like white pomfret and red snapper (prices seasonal).

                          潮州卤水拼盘 Teochew braised platter (price RM39.90+). There were braised duck, pork belly, eggs and tofu. The braising stock was mildly savoury so I could still taste the natural flavours in the tenderly juicy duck and pork belly.

                          The meat was lean but still tender. We could still taste the free range chicken's natural chicky sweet flavours beneath the sweet savoury sauces.

                          芋头香南乳排骨枝 Fried pork ribs (marinated in fermented beancurd) with yam. Fermented beancurd and yam are two of my favourites. The fried pork ribs and yam were served with a nice savoury sweet fermented beancurd sauce. The tender yam was well infused with the flavoursome sauce. The fried pork ribs too were well marinated with fermented beancurd. The fried pork ribs were tender as they were stewed in the sauce but still had a bit of crispness on the outside. (RM29.50+.)

                          瓦煲海皇王豆腐 Braised seafood and tofu in claypot (price RM29.90+). The fresh fish, prawn, shellfish etc in the savoury sweet sauce were nice. The nicest thing in the dish was the house made tofu. The tofu was made from scratch in house with soya bean milk made by grinding soya beans. The golden brown fried bean curd skin wrapped a very smooth, soft, creamy whitish core inside. I like the taste and aroma of fresh bean curd.



                          This tofu and seafood dish is a Must Try.

                          油炸尖沙鱼 Tsim sha fish deep fried to golden brown crisp outside while the inside remains white and moist. The crisp outside had a subtle savouriness while the white moist inside was naturally sweet. There was no greasy slick on the dish at all. I like this dish and would order it whenever it is available.

                          Fried green beans with olive vegetable and minced pork 橄榄菜肉碎四季豆 (price RM19.90+). The deep fried green beans were crunchy and juicy sweet.

                          Teochew fried noodles 潮州炒面条 (price RM14.90+).

                          Tasty savoury sweet eggy flavours on the tenderly springy egg noodles. Love these noodles.

                          潮州河粉 Teochew style hor fun. This is a Must Order. Sweet thin rice ribbon noodles complemented with nice toasty caramelised sauce (wok hei) flavour. Bits of chai poh provided crunch and more savoury flavours. The stir fried dish was not greasy.

                          Olive vegetable fried rice 橄榄菜炒饭. Puan Chong and family love this fluffy, non greasy fried rice with savoury flavour from leafy vegetable preserved in olive oil.

                          Eat at a Teochew restaurant must of course have orh nee 潮式芋泥. Chao Shan Restaurant's version is made with hand grounded smooth yam and pumpkin paste. Dressed with gingko nuts and eaten with coconut milk. We like it that Chao Shan's orh nee has layers of sweetness from the yam, pumpkin and coconut milk yet it is not overly sweet. (There is no lard or aromatic shallot oil in Chao Shan's orh nee.)

                          Dr. G, Man of Nerdology, sent me the Doom Patrol sourcebook/adventure Moonshot for DC Heroes, one of the few pieces missing from my collection. Gee, thanks, G!

                          "Accomplishments"

                          In theaters: Full disclosure, I've never seen the original Pet Sematary movie nor read the book. I'm not much of a Stephen King guy. I did learn from friends that they switched around a couple things in the remake's plot, but I have no real basis for comparison, so I'm coming to this as if it were the story's first adaptation. I tells its story well enough, a tale of SOMEthing in the woods raising the dead, first pets, but what next? The principals, adults and children both (oh, and felines too), give good performances even if the movie could have stressed the pull of the Wendigo a bit more to explain their characters' motivations a bit more. Of course, there's the King trope of people getting creepy visions no matter what the supernatural element. Possibly why I'm not a King guy. The subject matter is unsettling on the surface of it, but it should be more so when you're killing and undead-ing pets and other loved ones. The movie doesn't seem to want to show any really distressing moment, as if going for a PG-13 rating (which it didn't get anyway). So it's fine, but it doesn't really add anything to the genre or to the canon of Stephen King adaptations. Without its jump scares, would I even have reacted strongly to anything?

                          At home: Show of hands. Who, when they first saw This Is Spinal Tap, thought it was a real documentary about a real band they'd never heard of? At least for a little while? At what point did you realize? I think that happened to me back in those days when maybe I didn't know all the actors on sight. Because the King of All Mockumentaries entirely nails the look and feel of what it is parodying, right down to the treatment of old video from the fictional band's previous incarnations and the way the live shows are filmed. A lot of the comedy percolates in the background and you might miss it on first watch (Spinal Pap, ha!), and I mean, the songs are bad, but no worse than what was on the radio in the early 1980s (or indeed, at any time in radio history). As Spinal Tap gets more and more humiliated, that it is a comedy (and not an accidental one) becomes more apparent, but it shows its heart by the end, so it works as a realistic story too. Still the mockumentary against which all others are measured.

                          How charming! 1951's Royal Wedding features (in the background of course) the real Princess Elizabeth's wedding as opposed to some fictional kingdom like Martovia! (It's fact, insert any consonants in the space provided in "Mar__via" and you get a ready-made Balkan country for your 1930s-1950s comedy/musical.) That lends it a real sense of occasion, even if it doesn't actually feature prominently in what is, like many Fred Astaire affairs, a mostly plotless contrivance to hang song and dance numbers (and romance) on. You can count on director Stanley Donen to work extra hard to create numbers we haven't seen before, and he supplies a couple of fun, even great, ones. The two numbers on gimbled sets are most impressive. Co-star Jane Powell is uneven, best when she's playing the comedy, but I'm not a big fan of the high-voice romance stuff. What makes me go as high as four stars, however, is that care was taken to craft all the smaller parts in the film. There's something quirky, amusing and memorable about all of them, so the talking scenes are good too.

                          How very weird! I was eventually completely sold on Pennies from Heaven (the 1981 feature version), but it took a while. What you're faced with: A period musical in which Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters, among others, lipsynch to 1930s musical numbers (but... but... you had Bernadette Peters RIGHT THERE!!!), with ludicrous dance numbers (not a bad thing) going on in the characters' minds. And it's depressing as hell, contrasting the happy-ever-after escapism of musicals with the harsh reality of Depression-era Middle America. And once you realize that's what's going on, that it is essentially a deconstructionist piece, it starts to make sense and though a very black comedy, fun in its way. It takes the tropes of those old musical comedies and gives them a realistic spin, so the cad isn't so charming, the love affairs not so romantic, and the endings not so happy. In fact, everyone you would care for in a normal movie, you probably won't. Pennies From Heaven might even push the ugliness over the line, at times, but it has a way of getting its teeth into you.

                          The very first film adaptation of The Saint is RKO's The Saint in New York (1938) with Louis Hayward playing the lead role with murderous glee as he goes up against a list of New York crime lords on behalf of a city that hasn't been able to get rid of them legally. The Saint here is bloodthirsty, but in a fun, witty way, and though it's his first movie appearance, the character is mid-career and everyone knows who he is, providing a touch of world-building before he even makes it on screen. There's a LOT of incident in what is less than 70 minutes, enough that I wasn't always sure where we were in the plot, which made it feel like a serial, but it somehow lacked in the way of pacing. I can't help but wonder what it would have been like if Alfred Hitchcock had directed it as was originally discussed. As is, it's not a bad way to spend an hour and some change, it has a breezy atmosphere, mercilessly deadly action, sharp dialog, and even a couple of amusing henchmen (get them a dictionary, for Pete's sake!).

                          Odd Man Out is nominally about an IRA (in all but name) leader who, after getting separated from his crew during an operation, wanders the streets of Belfast wounded, exhausted, alone and with a murder on his conscience. I say "nominally" because while James Mason's Johnny McQueen is a sympathetic, tragic figure, the film is more concerned with the character of the city itself, or really, its population. At every turn, McQueen meets people in a position to help him, turn him away, or turn him in (among them a young William Hartnell). What will they choose? Though it sometimes feels more episodic than I'd want it to be, it does paint the picture of a world where the citizens may well side with the terrorists against the authorities. Though no overt mention is made of the IRA, or of the issues surrounding the conflict in Northern Ireland, it's in the mind of everyone we meet. I grew a little listless in the second act, but the third really brought it home. A memorable ending to say the least. This is from Carol Reed, the same director who gave us The Third Man, so I don't need to add that it has impeccable black and white cinematography, do I?

                          Given Jim Brown's participation as a town's first black sheriff in the Deep South, I thought ...Tick... Tick... Tick... was going to be the blaxploitation version of In the Heat of the Night, but it's played pretty straight, and is the better for it. Brown shares the hero duties with George Kennedy as the bitter sheriff who just lost the election to him, and he's really good in the picture. What the two men have in common is their dedication to the word of the law. Regardless of their relative level of privilege, they're not about protecting one community over the other, and they both suffer for it, from both sides. The events of the film are well designed to test the limits of the town folk's racist obstructionism for its own sake, and rather than go into lurid action material, the consequences shown felt pretty reasoned and realistic (even if it means the time bomb evoked by the title is perhaps overstated). The characters had families and back stories and weren't just empty avatars for the plot. Full props too to director Ralph Nelson who manages to sneak in some good visuals and sound design, making this a very nice surprise on all levels. FAVORITE OF THE WEEK

                          1957's 3:10 to Yuma is a fairly tense western thriller in which one man (Van Heflin) does his duty and escorts an outlaw (Glenn Ford) to a train before his boys attack and free him. Heflin looks like an ordinary schmoe, trying to keep his head down until money is offered, but can the outlaw seduce him with even more? Ford, for his part, is sly and charming, and totally steals the show. He's more scoundrel than criminal, and the audience's sympathies may well lie with him. The film makers' too. Often compared to High Noon, it also plays a waiting game and requires its hero to be ethical when every instinct says that's neither practical nor healthy. It's not as suspenseful as that film, but it's perhaps more of a testing ground for its characters' morality, on both sides of the equation. In High Noon, there's evil by way of inaction. In 3:10, characters make choices that will either doom them or redeem them. We will know if the right choice was made by whether or not Helfin's rancher is graced with fortune or not.

                          Neil Stryker and the Tyrant of Time is a very cheap movie, the kind you might make with your friends over the span of several years, though you managed to get enough dough together to do a lot of CG effects (not good ones, but still), and pay a couple of name actors for a day each, like David Ogden Stiers and Walter Koenig (rather clever casting, that). Because that's exactly what it is. Director Rob Taylor plays both Neil Stryker AND the Tyrant of Time, but you can't really tell, in a super-agent going up against mad scientist who wants to mostly ruin Christmases past and present action comedy that's watchable despite the low production values. I'm less bothered by the cheap CG as I am the terrible fright wigs that make everything look like an SNL sketch. The film loses the plot a couple times, most notably in the goblins chapter (does Taylor know what he's pastiching anymore?), but the biggest problem is that, perhaps in trying to mock macho action flicks of an earlier era, the film often comes across as misogynistic. A lot of crazy stuff in here, but one thing it forgets to throw at us with the kitchen sink is a likable character or two. Everyone's a jerk, there's no heart, and so it IS a kind of extended sketch that can't sustain our amusement the whole way through.

                          Set time machine to the 1990s. Keywords: A hero and a villain sharing a face. Ridiculous explosions. A child in danger. An obvious link to the Archer animated series.

                          I don't know what it is about Hong Kong directors coming to Hollywood that doesn't resonate with me the way their Chinese-language work does, but Face/Off isn't as memorable an experience for me as it is for most action fans. I'm almost sure that if John Woo had made this face-changing movie with Chow Yun Fat and Andy Lau, with the same fireworks squibs, insane villainy, explosive boat chases, and riffs on the Mexican standoff, I'd have eaten it up. (Maybe cut the doves in a church bit, which just feels like a producer told Woo he could repeat himself because audiences likely hadn't seen his HK stuff.) Underwhelmed though I may be, I can't deny the film is often effective. There's real tension when the bad guy meets the good guy's family. Nicholas Cage is a good hero, and Travolta a good villain (though I don't think we get enough of Cage's antics as the villain to really make the switch sing). There are some fun action sequences - the prison break is likely underrated - and Woo knows how to spin a good leitmotif (pointing their guns at the mirror, for example). The more I think about it, the more virtues I find, but it's no Hard-Boiled or anything.

                                    Musical Community      Comment   Translate Page      
                          I like to think that I am part of a large musical community, but, even though I play with several ensembles, teach (or have taught) a lot of students, and write music that is, more often than not, played by people I do not know, I am mostly a person who works alone. I imagine that there is an enormous community of composers, writers, visual artists, and inventors who work in isolation. We live in imaginary worlds where our subjects, characters, themes, and widgets relate to one another inside of our individual heads. In my opera-writing days I used to think of it as the theater inside my head.

                          But we isolated dreamers like to share our stuff with the insides of other people's heads. Coming together to make music is a real joy. But it takes work to arrange to come together, and it sometimes involves personal risk. Sometimes it involves personal friction.

                          I have, over the decades, been in organized musical situations that I have had to leave. I had to leave my teenage musical community because we all went our separate directions once school was over. I had to leave my Juilliard/New York musical community for personal and professional reasons. I had to leave my musical community in Schladming, Austria because I could not work under the psychological realities of that small town, and I had to leave my musical community in Vienna because, as a woman, a flutist, and a foreigner, I could not get adequate work there. I had to leave my musical community in Hong Kong because I could not extend my work visa, which ended up being a good thing both personally and logistically because the Hong Kong I lived in no longer exists.

                          I did not have much difficulty leaving my musical community in Boston because, upon returning after my years away, I didn't have time to establish a strong musical community there. Besides, I was excited to go off on a Midwestern adventure with my new husband.

                          The musical community in my new town was welcoming and vibrant, but, being a university town, people I grew close to would leave. And then, since we are all human, people I grew close to would die. Now I only know a few members of the music faculty at the university. I still make music with a healthy handful of friends, but I feel a distance from the organized musical communities that have developed in my town. I have spent decades building my own musical communities, but I know that if I do not do the work to promote and sustain them, they might cease to exist.

                          When Facebook came around I had a magical way of pretending that I was still a member of all those musical communities: the musicians I grew up with, the musicians I went to Juilliard with, the musicians I knew in Austria, the musicians I knew in Boston, and the musicians who used to live in my town. I thought that I might retain some of the connections to people I interacted with "there," but I haven't. I don't have email addresses or phone numbers for people I used to "know" "there." I wonder if any of the people who I was "friends" with on Facebook read this blog?

                          [If any of you are reading, please consider this an invitation to send me your email address so that we can keep in touch!]

                          I recently had to leave an organized musical community in another town that I loved being part of. I had to do it because of an embarrassing and insulting situation regarding a dear friend. I had no other choice than to put long-term friendship over organized musical community. I do not regret my decision, but I feel a great deal of sadness.

                          So I'm using this space to share my feelings, and hopefully I will be able to get to a place of closure.

                          Meanwhile, I guess I have scales to practice . . .

                          Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Sekitar pukul 17.00 WIB, WhatsApp, Facebook, dan Instagram down alias tumbang secara bersamaan.

                          Akibatnya, ketiga aplikasi pun tidak bisa diakses oleh puluhan juta penggunannya di berbagai negara.

                          Adapun negara yang terkena dampaknya adalah Indonesia, sebagian Asia, Eropa, Hong Kong, India, sebagian Amerika Serikat, Rusia, dan Jepang.

                          Sekitar pukul 20.06 WIB, baik layanan WhatsApp, Facebook, dan Instagram pun sudah pulih secara normal.

                          年末年始、リハビリ旅行の機会に、香港大学図書館を見学させていただきました。
                          https://lib.hku.hk/

                          図書館を案内いただき、検索システムについて軽い意見交換。事前にウェブサイトを見るだけでは気づきませんでしたが、2017年から8つのパブリック大学でアルマ (Alma) 導入とのこと。

                          ●ディスカバリーのプリモは、大きくカスタマイズされています。オーセンティックなユーザ向けに、タイトル限定などの検索ボックスを追加。
                          図書館トップページ上の検索ボックスの下に「Book Title」「Book Author」とあるのが、これに当たります。

                          デフォルトである一番上の検索ボックスで検索語、プルダウンの中から「HKALL」(the Hong Kong Academic Library Link、香港の全て?という意)で限定すれば、その8つの大学の所蔵(利用可能?)資料に限定できる。サイニィのような総合目録機能のようです。

                          #今月下旬から、リハビリ旅行でカナダのノバスコシア州に行きます。ある大学図書館サイトでは、上記の「HKALL」に当たるような「Novanet」という検索サービスがデフォルトになっており、この点も背景など伺う機会があればと思っています。

                          ●ディスカバリーが最初の検索オプションになっていることについて ◆
                          低年次生がプリントの所蔵資料に絞りたいと感じるより、多種な資料が出てきていいと受け止められているだろうとか。英語で授業されるているからか、電子ブックもポピュラーな様子。

                          実際、どこから検索するかは人による。ライブラリアンも選択肢を提示までと。

                          ●アルマの漢字検索はイマイチな状況と。

                          On April 7, Taiwan’s foreign ministry posted a short video clip on Twitter that it said showed the razing of a Catholic Church building in Shaanxi in central China. The tweet tagged Sam Brownback, the U.S. ambassador-at-large for religious freedom, who had said in a March 8 speech in Hong Kong that “the Chinese government’s abuse of members of Catholic communities has continued” — despite a September 2018 deal between the Catholic Church and Beijing ostensibly covering the appointing of bishops in China...

                          We’re in some kind of post-apocalyptic world, though, taking the handful of hints the film drops about the world before, perhaps not a post-apocalyptic Earth. So much is clear: there was some kind of war, and eternal winds have turned the world, or at least the part of it we get to see, into a windy wasteland.

                          Our protagonist is a nameless wanderer (Patrick Swayze) and former high-ranking soldier spending his time wandering the wastelands, meditating while standing on his head and fighting off the only mutants the film bothers with including; all to deal with his PTSD, one supposes. However, when he meets his old teacher (John Fujioka) only to witness him being murdered by professional assassin Sho (Christopher Neame wearing a very excited looking hairpiece), he ambles after the killers, eventually ending up on the farm of Kasha (Lisa Niemi), where he hires on as a farmhand.

                          He’s at exactly the right place, too, for Sho is the preferred hired assassin of local bad guy Damnil (Anthony Zerbe) who is in the classic bad guy business of trying to take over a small community with violence. And that’s without Damnil knowing Kasha’s secret: her lands include a secret underground source of clean water. Clean water, mind you, she plans to provide to the whole community for free soon enough. Looks like Shane, ahem, Swayze, will have to use his powers of violence for good while also falling for Kasha, and playing replacement dad for her son.

                          As post-apocalyptic westerns – and this really is a thinly veiled variation on Shane and other films where a violent stranger arrives in a little town, finds peace for a short time and then has to solve bad guy troubles with his old violent ways only to drift away again afterwards – go, Steel Dawn is a pretty good one. As a friend of the goofier side of the post-apocalyptic divide, one can be a little disappointed that the sand-digging mutants in the film’s prologue are the only truly Italian-apocalypse-style weird bit Steel Dawn delivers, but the film’s straighter soul works out fairly well for it. And hey, straighter doesn’t mean there’s anybody here not dressing either in weird rags or in weird rags with leather pauldrons and of course other assorted Duran Duran music video leather bits, nor do we have to miss men wearing mop-shaped things where we humans have hair (best in class here is obviously Neame’s hair-thing even the less imaginative will suspect of one day just packing up its bags and crawling away, leaving a bald man behind). In fact, the lack of mutants – as well as firearms and even bows for some reason – does clearly convince the film to replace other post-apocalyptic mainstays as well. So no dune buggies this time around but wind-powered dune buggies that move so slow you’d think people would rather walk – there’s still even a race of a sort – and suggestions of the rests of a bizarre warrior culture in this place’s military that has nothing whatsoever to do with the one in our world. Also, Brion James is playing a good guy.

                          Lance Hool’s direction isn’t anything to write home about, competently plugging away at Doug Lefler’s script without demonstrating much style but also showing himself to be just competent enough to handle things decently, as well as clever enough to understand that a good desert shot means instant atmosphere. The script is mostly competent too, with a couple of fun ideas, a couple genre standards executed well, and with some curious moments like the randomly appearing and disappearing dog Swayze befriends that has no function at all in the film except to suggest that our hero, probably, doesn’t eat dogs but shares his food with them. Or the fact that it can’t seem to decide if Sho is an honourable assassin or not, and so has him jumping merrily from honourable to dishonourable while Neame is chewing the scenery just as merrily.

                          The action scenes are fun, making good use of the fact that Swayze’s dancer background makes him a natural for screen fighting (I’d argue dancers are better basic material than many non-screen/stage trained martial artists for this). We’re not talking Hong Kong levels of choreography here, obviously, but the fights are much better than clean punch-ups.

                          At this point in his career, Swayze is in full sway of his soft macho persona, generally selling the softer parts of his character a bit better than the machismo. Though on the machismo side, he has a note-perfect scene where he encounters Damnil and his henchmen while bathing and very naked that gives extra tough guy points. Swayze certainly makes a more convincing romantic actor than most guys you’ll see playing the lead in action movies of any era, so the romance part of the film actually feels like more than a beat the plot has to hit. Throw Swayze into a pool of character actors for every other role like Steel Dawn does, and he certainly gets my seal of approval.


                          Honestly, what more could I ask of a post-apocalyptic western without guns?

Film work case.

                          • In this article, we'll show you how to start YouTube Marketing for your company and explain how to set up a strategy.

                          Why is YouTube a potential marketing tool?

                          YouTube is popular with audiences of all ages and the world:
                          • YouTube has more than 1 billion users, about one-third of all Internet users, and has more than 1 billion hours of watch per day - more than Netflix and Facebook.
                          • Youtube covers 88 countries and regions and is available in 76 different languages.
                          • In the United States, Youtube covers more than 18 to 34 years of age, more than any TV network.
                          To successfully attract a huge user of YouTube, you need a comprehensive strategy that includes:
                          • Produce consistent and quality content
                          • Communicate with subscribers and reviewers
                          • Optimize your channels and videos for the YouTube search engine
                          • Set the KPI (Key Performance Indicator) to determine if you have succeeded

                          Starting with a strategy

                          First, what do you want from YouTube Marketing? Because the goals you set will affect the strategy you have developed.

                          The general goal of everyone is:
                          • Increase brand awareness by acquiring new subscribers
                          • Increase website traffic
                          • Increase user engagement

                          The goal needs to be clearly defined. Use SMART to set your goals and ensure that each goal is: specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound.

                          Develop key performance indicators (KPIs) to make your broad goals more practical. For example, to measure the goal of "improve brand awareness," your KPI can be set to "10% increase channel subscribers within 30 days.

                          Using a specific KPI helps assess your return on investment (ROI) and provides an accurate report of all your resource expenditures.

                          How to decide which type of movie to create

                          • Deciding which movie to make depends on your creative resources, the quality and budget of the film.
                          • Invest in equipment that produces high-quality sound and movies. However, simple mobile phone lenses can already satisfy different situations, especially single vlogs or one-on-one interviews.
                          • The good news is that you don't have to spend too much money on making YouTube videos. Having said that, if the sound of your film or the quality of the film is not good, they will have difficulty competing with other films.


                          Common examples of Youtube Marketing include:

                          Interview with KOL in your industry. These videos can appeal to users who are familiar with your company or interested in your guests. And KOL can also help you improve the company's image.

                          The video series performed very well on YouTube. Users generally know what videos they want to watch, and then they enter relevant keywords in Youtube to search. For example, Evan Carmichael has several interesting film series, one of which is the “Top 10 Rules For Success” series, with different success in each episode.
                          • Series: If you come up with a great video idea, use it as the basis for the film series, just like the "Top 10 Rules For Success" series above.
                          • How-To Videos: These videos are valuable to your audience and your company - especially in the movie to indicate how your company can solve their problems for customers.
                          • Products and instructional videos: Show the audience what your products can do and how they can help your customers. For example, MailChimp shows users how to use Mailchimp to create a Facebook campaign through a short video.
                          • Animated Movies: Consider adding multiple movie types to your strategy. Diversity helps increase the appeal of customers and keep them engaged.
                          Remember to plan your video content in advance and set up Deadline to make sure you're ready for what you need and post different types of videos.

                          You can consider using YouTube's management tools.

                          Like other social platforms like Facebook and Twitter, YouTube is thriving on user interaction. In order to drive customer interaction, you also need to actively engage users to interact with you and respond to user comments/messages.

                          As online channels become more and more, a large number of user comments or reviews will become a challenge for the company. If you don't have some management tools, it may take a few hours for you to reply to all comments/messages.

                          Surprisingly, there aren't many management tools for YouTube. One of them is Agorapulse, which is available for four major social media platforms - including YouTube.

                          Tips for using the YouTube management tool:

                          • Review the user's message for your video and decide when and how to post the response. For negative comments, it is best to reply as soon as possible.
                          • Respond to users as a team: Assign questions based on the areas of expertise of different people in your company.
                          • Monitor your brand name on YouTube so that you never miss a user's comment on your company in other videos.
                          • Set some standard answers in advance to quickly respond to frequent and similar comments.


                          Optimize your videos for better SEO

                          If you want to get good marketing results through YouTube, you need to optimize your YouTube channel and content. By optimizing your videos for the right keywords, your target audience is more likely to see your videos.

                          The more people can see your videos, the better the video views, engagements, and subscribers.

                          Here are a few important factors that determine your ranking in YouTube search:
                          • Keyword: Find out which keywords (Keyword) your target users will type to find your videos, and then add those Keywords to your videos. Put the Keyword in the movie description, and your Keyword should be similar or identical to the movie title. You can even use YouTube's search to find Keyword ideas and provide you with video ideas.
                          • Tags for channels and personal videos: Add as many relevant tags as possible. Tools such as TubeBuddy can help you find the right label. .
                          • Interactions and subscribers: YouTube will measure the quality of your videos by taking into account the user’s participation in your videos and the number of subscribers. In addition to the number of comments and Likes, you will become your number of subscribers as soon as the user watches your video, which will also increase your ranking.

                          La decisione presa da Apple di eliminare da Apple Music un brano dedicato al massacro di piazza Tiananmen rischia di diventare un caso politico. Alcuni senatori hanno accusato Apple di aver ceduto alla richiesta di censura avanzata dal governo cinese. La scorsa settimana, Apple ha infatti rimosso una canzone dell’artista Jacky Cheung di Hong Kong che faceva riferimento al massacro di Tiananmen nel 1989. Intitolata “Ren Jian Dao” (possiamo tradurla approssimativamente in […]
